NASCAR: 2018 First Data 500 Stage 2 Write-Up at Martinsville Speedway

Joey Logano takes over the lead-off Denny Hamlin ahead of the Stage 2 restart.

Both Kyle & Kurt Busch pushed Hamlin down to 4th before Clint Bowyer rounds out the Top 5.

Martin Truex Jr. pinches with Clint Bowyer by the curb before pulling him off in 5th.

Behind these two drivers, Ryan Newman currently slots in 7th in the No.31 Chevrolet for Richard Childress Racing.

So far, the lead remains unchanged with Logano still leading with under 60 to go.

Martin Truex Jr. at one point went door to door with Ricky Stenhouse Jr. at the backstretch.

But Truex kept himself fine as he gets around Kurt Busch in 4th with 37 to go.

AJ Allmendinger who will be out of JTG Daugherty Racing after this season just passed Austin Dillon in 10th.

A. Dillon made contact with the wall towards Turn 1 before making his way into pit road as Kevin Harvick gets by his spot.

Not only he suffered a sway bar issue onto his next pit stop.

But NASCAR busted A.Dillon for speeding too fast.

On the other hand, Ty Dillon ran out of the best small-car teams with the No.13 Chevy for Germain Racing in 13th.

Regan Smith may have slowed down onto his way into pit road.

But the race continued under green as there’s no need of caution coming out.

During the final lap of Stage 2, Joey Logano held off Denny Hamlin for the mini-win.
