Logano wins Talladega by a nose

TALLADEGA, Ala. (AP) - Joey Logano nipped Kyle Busch at the finish line to win the Nationwide Series race at Talladega Superspeedway.

The race was marred by a late accident that sent Eric McClure to an Alabama hospital by helicopter. McClure was awake and speaking to emergency workers following the accident.

McClure was collected in a multi-car accident, and his car went head-first into the inside wall of Turn 3. The car's roof had to be cut and peeled back for McClure to be removed.

It led to a 19-minute red flag, and Logano restarted in third with two laps to go in the race. He stayed in line pushing Busch until they exited the final turn. Logano then pulled around Busch and just edged him at the finish.
