Penske Racing Sweeps The Weekend At Bristol [VIDEO]

It was a big weekend for Penske Racing at Bristol Motor Speedway.  Joey Logano became the fifth driver to win three Sprint Cup races this season when he held off teammate Brad Keselowski Saturday night.  Keselowski won the Truck Series race and Penske driver Ryan Blaney took the Nationwide event for a clean sweep.  It’s also the first time since 2006 that Ford swept a weekend.

Logano took the lead when he passed Matt Kenseth with 44 laps left and held off Keselowski the rest of the way.  It’s Logano’s sixth career victory and first at Bristol.  Kenseth came in third followed by Jimmie Johnson and Kurt Busch.

Jamie McMurray led a race-high 148 laps, but says his car got tight in the final 100 laps and he faded to eighth.

Denny Hamlin was leading the race when he was spun out by Kevin Harvick and ended up colliding with Dale Earnhardt, Jr. ending promising runs for both drivers.  Hamlin showed his frustration by throwing his HANS device off the rear deck of Harvick’s car as he drove by with the lead.

Just two more races left before the start of the Chase for the Sprint Cup Championship.  Atlanta Motor Speedway is up next on the schedule Sunday night.
