Logano pulls a Kyle Busch and steals one: The Subway Jalapeno 250 Review

It was Talladega all over again.  Coming out of nowhere, a Joe Gibbs Toyota stole one from the rest of the field.  Near the end of a crash filled race, it looked like either Elliott Sadler with Kevin Harvick or Danica Patrick with Aric Almirola were going to win. 

Speaking of Patrick, she showed that she could be a threat for any of the super speedways on the schedule from here on out.  The rest of the schedule?  Not so much.  But Patrick impressed.  In the end, it was a huge pileup that cost her a top 5.  So, what happened?  It was one of those Super Speedway type accidents.  Everyone started to get into each other, and in the end, it was a hit by Almirola that sent Patrick into the wall and everyone else piled up.  Tony Stewart, Kenny Wallace, and many others were involved. 

Jason Leffler who was being pushed by Reed Sorenson wound up making it through before the wreck happened and almost made a run at Logano.

Results and points after the Jump!

It was still a good run for the Nationwide Only drivers.  Sorenson was able to give himself a bit of a cousion in the points battle.  Here's how they look:

Pos # Driver Make Points Wins

Sorenson's great run has kept his team on top of the owner's standings.  Here's how the owner's standings look:

Pos Driver # Points
1 Reed Sorenson 32 636
2 Kyle Busch 18 634
3 Carl Edwards 60 614
4 Elliott Sadler 2 601
5 Joey Logano 20 581

7 Justin Allgaier 31 573
8 Kevin Harvick 33 563
9 Brad Keselowski 22 552
10 Jason Leffler 38 546

 

Nothing has changed in the top 30 going forward.  Sam Hornish could start the next 3 races and probably get himself locked in.  The top 33 are locked in. Here's how it looks:

Pos Driver # Points
31 Morgan Shepherd 89 270
32 Scott Wimmer 40 230
33 Kevin LePage 52 226
