Logano snatches win away from Larson in Xfinity Series

CONCORD, N.C. (AP) — Joey Logano snatched a win away from Kyle Larson in the second race of a NASCAR doubleheader.

Logano passed Larson on a restart with 12 laps to go to win the Xfinity Series race Sunday at Charlotte Motor Speedway. The race was originally scheduled for Friday night but washed out by Hurricane Matthew and run following the Sprint Cup race. It made for 800 miles of racing, and Logano and Larson were among five drivers who ran both events.

Larson led 165 of the 200 laps and at one point had lapped all but one car in the field. A late caution gave Logano a shot to get by Larson, and he did after a three-wide battle for a lap.

Elliott Sadler finished second. Larson faded to fourth.
