LONG POND, Pa. (AP) — Joey Logano stood on top of the No. 20 high-fiving everyone he could reach in Victory Lane. Beverages were sprayed, fists were pumped and throaty shouts of celebration could be heard well down the 2 1/2-mile track.

It’s what winning a Sprint Cup race is all about.

It’s what Logano has waited years to truly experience. Not rain or Mark Martin would deny him this feeling.

Logano gave a crafty Martin a well-timed nudge out of the way in the closing laps Sunday at Pocono Raceway to clinch his first victory since 2009 and become the first Sprint Cup driver this season to win from the pole.

The one-time prodigy and the grizzled veteran pushing hard down the stretch was a duel to remember at Pocono.

Logano had the top car all weekend, posting the fastest practice time Friday and then taking the pole Saturday.

He shoved aside one of his earliest supporters to take the checkered flag. Mark Martin saw Logano race at 11 years old and raved about his potential as future Cup champion. Back in 2005, Martin said Logano “can be one of the greatest that ever raced in NASCAR.”

The 53-year-old Martin, looking for his first win since 2009, took the lead with eight laps left. The 22-year-old Logano, though, bumped Martin out of the way and zipped past for the winning move with three laps remaining.

Tony Stewart was third, Jimmie Johnson fourth and Denny Hamlin fifth.

At a track known for its tedious 500-mile race, 400 miles was the perfect length to produce a fantastic finish on fresh asphalt.

Martin is all too familiar with his runner-up spot at Pocono. He has yet to win in 51 career Cup races at Pocono and has finished second seven times.

Clint Bowyer was sixth. Matt Kenseth finished seventh and wrested the points lead away from Greg Biffle. Dale Earnhardt Jr. had the dominant car most of the race and finished eighth. Paul Menard and Jamie McMurray rounded out the top 10.
