Nationwide - Daytona - Race results

Joey Logano led only one lap, but it was the only one that counted; while Danica Patrick impressed and ran at the front before getting caught up in a final turn multi-car wreck.
Joey Logano recovered from a spin on lap 26 that saw him fall out of the top 30, but then he worked his way up and thanks to a last lap boost from Joe Gibbs Racing team mate Kyle Busch he finally led his only lap of the evening - and the only one that really mattered.

It's Logano's ninth Nationwide win in 77 starts and his first at Daytona in six starts.

Danica Patrick led 13 laps during the race - her previous total tally having been five in 18 series starts - before she and her JR Motorsports teammate Aric Almirola came up on a slow Mike Wallace in the final run through turn 4 and ended up in a six-car wreck that also involved Kevin Harvick Inc. drivers Tony Stewart and Elliott Sadler.
