Seeking 4th straight win, Logano is halfway leader at Martinsville

0 Comments

After 250 of a scheduled 500 laps, Joey Logano is the halfway leader of the race and potentially halfway to his fourth consecutive win in Sunday’s Goody’s Headache Relief 500 at Martinsville Speedway.

This is the first race of Round 3 of the Chase for the Sprint Cup. Logano came into this race having won all three races of Round 2.

Starting from the pole, Logano has led 144 laps, while Harvick has led the second-most number of laps (38).

Brad Keselowski is running second, followed by Harvick, Matt Kenseth and Jimmie Johnson.

It’s been an incident-filled race thus far with 10 cautions for 62 laps. Chase driver Carl Edwards has been battling overheating issues and is running 21st, lowest of the eight remaining Chase drivers.
