WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. (AP) – Joey Logano had enough fuel this time.

A week after running out of gas while leading at Pocono with three laps to go, Logano passed Kevin Harvick on the final turn as Harvick ran dry to win the NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Watkins Glen International on Sunday.

Logano completed a weekend sweep after winning the Xfinity race on Saturday and gave Roger Penske his first Cup victory at The Glen.

Kyle Busch finished second and moved inside the top 30 in points as he continued his remarkable surge. Harvick coasted home third, Matt Kenseth was fourth, and Kurt Busch fifth. Clint Bowyer, Brad Keselowski, Carl Edwards, Sam Hornish Jr. and Jimmie Johnson rounded out the top 10.
