The win, his fourth of the season, advances him to the third round no matter what happens at Kansas Speedway and Talladega Superspeedway.
"What a great car," Logano said. "This makes Talladega way easier. I know it's on everyone mind's when this round started. It certainly helps us sleep easier for the next couple of weeks. ...
