JOLIET, Ill. – Some drivers take a vacation on an off week from the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, go to the beach, play golf or just take it easy.
Not Joey Logano. Instead of relaxing on the final off-weekend for the Sprint Cup Series, he decided to race in Sunday's NASCAR Nationwide Series STP 300 at Chicagoland Speedway.
It was a wise move on Logano's part, as he took the lead on the final restart and led the final 15 laps to win his second NNS race of the season. His other win was June 1 at Dover International Speedway.
"I was okay doing nothing on the off-weekend, but you can't say no to RP (team owner Roger Penske)," Logano said with a laugh. "At the start of the race, I thought we had a thirdplace car, but we made some adjustments and got it a lot better.
