  • DOVER, Del. — His chase for a Cup championship all but over, Joey Logano turned his pursuit toward Dover history.
    Logano dominated at Dover International Speedway once more and took the checkered flag in the track's Nationwide Series race for the fourth straight time. Logano became the first driver to win four straight races at Dover in NASCAR's second-tier series.
    He pulled away in the No. 22 Ford down the stretch Saturday and was never seriously challenged for the win on the mile track.
    "It's been my favorite race track ever since I started here," he said.
    With good reason. Logano has swept the two Dover races the last two seasons.
    Logano's Ford, however, flunked post-race inspection because both sides off the front were too low. NASCAR will announce penalties later.
    Logano, who started on the pole and led 106 laps, won for the third time this season. Four drivers have won 11 times in the No. 22 Ford, all with crew chief Jeremy Bullins. Brad Keselowski, AJ Allmendinger and Ryan Blaney have all won in the No. 22.
    "There were a lot of streaks to be kept alive today and we managed to pull that off," Bullins said.
    Kyle Larson was second, followed by Kevin Harvick, Brian Vickers and Elliott Sadler.
    Sam Hornish Jr. was 17th and had his points lead shrink to four over Austin Dillon with five races left.
