Nationwide - Darlington - Race results

12 May 2012

Joey Logano beat his Joe Gibbs Racing team mate Denny Hamlin to the chequered flag in a green-white-chequered finish to the VFW Sport Clips 200 NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Darlington Speedway underneath the floodlights at Darlington Raceway on Friday.

It's Logano's 12th victory in his 96th Nationwide start, and his third victory in his past five series starts alone. It's the first time that he's won at Darlington, but JGR have taken six of the past seven Darlington victories.

Logano led for only four laps all evening, tying the record for fewest laps led by a winner set by Jack Ingram in April 1985) and subsequently tied by Matt Kenseth in May 2009.

Earlier on Friday afternoon, Ricky Stenhouse Jr. won pole position for the VFW Sport Clips 200 with a lap of 28.336s (173.546 mph), 0.125s ahead of Denny Hamlin who lined up on the second row of the grid for the Friday evening race. It was the rening champion's fifth pole in 82 NASCAR Nationwide Series races, and his first pole in 2012 or at Darlington Raceway. His previous best start was eighth in 2011.
