Joey Logano led the Joe Gibbs Racing Nationwide Series cars with a 3rd place finish at Watkins Glen. Kyle Busch led many laps on Saturday, but an early drive through the grass and a late fuel issue left him with a 4th place finish.

It was clear from the outset of today’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Good Sam’s RV Insurance 500 that all three Joe Gibbs Racing entries brought a car capable of winning at Pocono Raceway.

Kyle Busch would lead JGR with a second-place finish, while Denny Hamlin and Joey Logano were forced to settle for 15th and 26th respectively.
