"Sliced Bread" Gets a Big Win!
Logano Outduels Mentor Martin
Second Win Could Help Secure Young Driver's Future
>> When Joey Logano was 15, Mark Martin anointed him as a NASCAR Superstar
in the making.
The veteran got an unwelcome reminder Sunday at Pocono Raceway that he still might be right. "He raced for it," Martin said of Logano. "He certainly didn't get that one handed to him."
Logano shoved Martin out of the lead and led the final 4 laps of the Pocono 400 in a moment called "surreal." The Middletown, Conn., native said he didn't stop screaming until he reached Victory Lane.
In becoming the first driver to win from the pole position this season, Logano, 22, became the youngest winner in Pocono Raceway history. <<
