Joey Logano will run a NASCAR Nationwide race in Iowa in June, the night before competing in a Sprint Cup event at Pocono.
The Iowa Speedway says Logano will return to its 0.875-mile track for its Nationwide opener on June 8. Logano beat Kevin Harvick in a K&N Pro Series race at Iowa in 2007 and led the first competitive lap ever run at the track as a 16-year-old in 2006.
Logano says that racing at Iowa and Pocono should be fun and that he's looking to go ''two-for-two'' for the weekend.
Logano is the biggest driver yet committed to Iowa's first Nationwide race of the season. The track will host another Nationwide race in August in addition to an IndyCar event and two Camping World Trucks series races.
