GREENVILLE, S.C. - Sixteen-year-old Joey Logano swept to the win Saturday night at Greenville-Pickens Speedway, his second NASCAR Grand National victory in less than ten days.

Logano, of Middletown, Conn., held off Sean Caisse to win the NASCAR Busch East Series Greased Lightning 150. The victory comes on the heals of his NASCAR West Series season opening win at Phoenix International Raceway April 19. The West Series and Busch East Series wins were Logano's first and second career NASCAR starts, respectively.

"I'm with one of the best teams out here," said Logano of his Joe Gibbs Driven Chevrolet team. "They do their jobs, I do mine, and we're just clicking right now."

Logano, who set the track record at 87.481 mph qualifying, took the lead from defending race winner Caisse on lap 73. Bryon Chew of Mattituck, N.Y. was third followed by Peyton Sellers of Danville, Va., and Rogelio Lopez of Mexico City, Mexico.

Jeffrey Earnhardt, Mike Olsen, Michelle Theriault, John Freeman and John Townley rounded out the top 10.

The next race for the NASCAR Busch East Series is the Grand National Division combination race at Elko, Minn. May 18.
