Joey Logano Comes Out of Nowhere To Win Nationwide Series Race At Daytona

It was a crazy race at Daytona International Speedway as usual for the NASCAR Nationwide Series, as the two car drafts dominated the race during Friday night's Subway Jalapeno 250. During the event, the four Kevin Harvick Inc. cars, along with the JR Motorsports cars of Aric Almirola and Danica Patrick seemed to be the ones to beat. However, it turned out to be a Joe Gibbs Racing car that made it out on top to take the checkers after a crazy last few laps - and no, it wasn't Kyle Busch. Joey Logano held of a hard charging Kyle Busch and an even bigger hard charger of Jason Leffler in the final lap of the event to take the win.

There was also a major crash through the tri-oval on the last lap behind the leaders, which included three KHI cars(the other car of Clint Bowyer was already destroyed) and the two JR Motorsports cars - all of which were threats for the win. Mike Wallace was also involved in the accident, along with Steven Wallace.

Unofficially, there were 36 lead changes among 13 drivers and 6 caution flags for 23 laps.
