Joey Logano raced to his eighth Nationwide Series victory of the year Friday night, passing Brad Keselowski with eight laps to go after taking on two tires and a splash of gas.
Logano led 62 laps en route to his 17th career victory and first at Charlotte Motor Speedway. He has made 18 series starts this season.
Keselowski made a quick pit stop with nine laps left, but his pit crew didn't get enough fuel in his tank and couldn't challenge for the lead. He finished 18th.
Kevin Harvick was second, followed by Nationwide points leader Elliott Sadler. Kyle Busch finished fourth and Denny Hamlin fifth in the race that included 11 Sprint Cup regulars.
