Joey Logano Passes Kevin Harvick on Final Lap to Win at Watkins Glen
Joey Logano raced past an out-of-fuel Kevin Harvick on the final lap to win the Cheez-It 355 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Watkins Glen, N.Y., on Sunday afternoon. Harvick’s miscalculation on fuel gave Logano his second win of 2015.
Kyle Busch finished second, with Harvick third, Matt Kenseth fourth and Kurt Busch in fifth. As a result of his second place finish, Kyle Busch finally landed in the top 30 in the season’s point standings — the cut-off for NASCAR’s Chase playoff series — despite missing the first 11 races due to injuries suffered in an Xfinity Series crash in February.
Harvick remained in first place in the season’s points standings with Logano, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Jimmie Johnson and Brad Keselowski immediately behind him.
