Dover: Nationwide results

Joey Logano claimed victory in Saturday's Nationwide Series race at Dover International Speedway, after a final tyre call proved costly for Kyle Busch and Kasey Kahne.
Joey Logano claimed his first NASCAR Nationwide Series win of 2013, his 19th victory in 114 career starts in the series, after a sharp call on tyre strategy at the last round of pit stops allowed the Penske Racing #22 to get the jump on longtime leaders Kyle Busch and Kasey Kahne going into the crucial restart at Dover International Speedway on Saturday afternoon.

Austin Dillon started the 5-Hour Energy 200 from pole, his second pole in 2013 and the fifth in 55 Nationwide races. Kyle Busch's attempt to take second place from Sam Hornish Jr. ended in a scare that left him sideways and dropping back a spot behind Kasey Kahne, but even so Busch had recovered to lead by the time the first caution came out for Joe Nemechek hitting the wall on lap 47.

A slow pit stop for Busch after he pulled up too close to pit wall left him down in fifth at the restart with Joey Logano taking the lead from Dillon through to the next caution on lap 79 for a spin by Elliott Sadler into the inside wall, allowing Trevor Bayne to jump Dillon at the restart after both adopted a two-tyre gambit, but it didn't make much difference: half a dozen laps later and Busch was back in front again.

The next caution on lap 112 was triggered by Kahne getting into the back of a slow Mike Wallace in the exit of turn 2 and ending the #01 into a hard hit with the inside wall with Kahne benefiting after taking two tyres only in the ensuing pit stops but then losing the lead to Busch at the restart on lap 129. Busch and Kahne stretched their lead over Logano until a caution on lap 161 for a harmless spin by Dexter Stacey; all the leaders came in to pit lane despite the remaining distance being marginal on fuel, and Busch and Kahne's mutual decision to take four tyres cost them badly as they fell behind nine cars who opted for two tyres only.

Logano led from Brian Vickers, Trevor Bayne and Austin Dillon at the restart on lap 166, and remained in charge from there until the end of the race to become the first driver to win three consecutive race at the Monster Mile. Kyle Busch pushed his luck to the absolute edge - by going three-wide on the outside and at one point coming close to going into the wall, but in the absence of any further cautions could only climb his way back up to fifth place by the time the chequered flag came out at the end of 200 laps.

Brian Vickers was the highest-placed Nationwide Series regular in second place ahead of Matt Kenseth who had managed to climb his way into third ahead of Trevor Bayne by the finish. Behind Busch and Kahne, a clutch of series regulars finished closely together - Hornish, Dillon, Regan Smith and Kyle Larson - meaning that there was little advantage in the standings and Smith retains the points lead by 27 points over Hornish.
