Joey Logano won Saturday's Nationwide Series race at Nashville Superspeedway, leading 95 of 225 laps.

Today's win by Logano is the 25th NASCAR Nationwide Series win for Toyota since entering the series in 2007.

Logano's win marks the first win by a Camry at the 1.33-mile Nashville Superspeedway. Logano also becomes the first driver to win two NNS races (Kentucky 2008 and Nashville 2009) before age 19.

Kyle Busch finished second in today's race after leading 77 laps in today's race.

Jason Leffler (sixth) and Scott Lagasse, Jr. (10th) also earned top-10 finishes in today's race.

Other Camry drivers in the NNS race included Burney Lamar (13h), Michael McDowell (15th), Michael Waltrip (16th), Michael Annett (19th), Brian Scott (25th) and David Green (38th.

Three Camry drivers are in the top-10 in the unofficial NNS driver point standings -- Busch (second), Leffler (fourth) and Lagasse, Jr. (9th).

How do you feel about your finish today? "It was a rally. Tough day for us - it was a battle all day long and a 10th today after where we started was a win for us. Our pit stops - our guys worked really, really hard and they got us track position we needed and we worked on the car all day long and worked on me some as a rookie. I'm learning and I don't know how much I can get away with these things yet and really my problem I keep finding is I'm trying to run them too free so we just keep tightening them up and we go faster. I have to get the ARCA cars and dirt cars that I grew up driving out of my head and be thinking about Nationwide cars. Real good day for us - terrible in qualifying and worked really, really hard on it all day and ended up pretty decent."

What happened that took you out of the race? "All I can say is - Burney Lamar. Thanks to Toyota for their support. We're a brand new team trying to get going here and things like this we don't need in the counter, but it's part of racing. It was a good day - started out bad because we didn't even get to make a qualifying run because of some deal in the inspection lane. We're making the most of it, but what do you do. I've never run into anybody on the race track and I just don't understand. He was still racing and I wasn't."
