Joey Logano overtook Ryan Truex with only five laps to go to win the Nationwide 5-hour Energy 200 in come-from-behind fashion at Dover International Speedway on Saturday.

Logano beat pole-sitter Truex by only a little under two seconds for his fourth Nationwide win of the season. Truex, who had an emergency appendectomy eleven days ago, took the lead from Logano on lap 152. However, Truex, caught up in driver congestion was eventually overtaken by the number 18 car.

The win for Logano is his first at Dover.

"We're coming to the race track with a better package and are able to make small adjustments to tune it in better," said Logano. "And it all transfers to the race."

"Last year we struggled a little bit and we were able to really diagnose some things we could do better as a team," Logano said.
