    Joey Logano passed Matt Crafton entering the first turn at the start of a two-lap sprint to the finish and won an exciting NASCAR Truck race at Martinsville Speedway on Saturday. The Daytona 500 champion won for the first time in the series to become the 26th driver to win in all three of NASCAR's top series. Crafton, who led 100 laps while Logano led 150, figured he might be in trouble with the two-lap finish.

    If Jeff Gordon ever decides to race again after his 2015 retirement tour is finished, it would likely be at Martinsville Speedway, a track where the four-time champion has had great success. ''This is probably the first track that comes to mind for me that if I ran another race - not that I have plans to - that I'd do it at Martinsville. Gordon's teammate, Dale Earnhardt Jr., has won at Daytona and got his first victory at Martinsville last fall. ''You want them both pretty bad,'' he said, the latter not only because the smallest track on NASCAR's top circuit is also the oldest, but because it gives a grandfather clock as a trophy.

    Roger Penske has warned his NASCAR team to stay out of any controversy regarding the possible manipulation of tires used during races. The team owner is aware of rampant industry speculation that some crews are drilling tiny holes in tires to allow air to escape during a race, a process known as ''bleeding tires.'' NASCAR has confiscated tires the last two weeks, including those of Team Penske driver Joey Logano following the race at Phoenix. Logano and Kevin Harvick's tires both cleared a second inspection. NASCAR took tires from four other drivers after last week's race at California, but results of an independent inspection haven't been released.

    Daytona 500 champion Joey Logano won the pole for Sunday's NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Martinsville Speedway, and Chase Elliott earned the right to make his debut in the series by qualifying 27th. Logano turned a fast lap at 98.461 mph in the third round of qualifying, edging Ryan Newman (98.328), to win the 10th pole of his career and his second this season. ''You win anything at Martinsville, it's a big deal,'' Logano said, adding that having only run five laps to get through the first two rounds of qualifying gave him an advantage heading into the final round. Martin Truex Jr. (98.018), Jeff Gordon (97.613) and Jimmie Johnson (97.583) complete the top five.
