LOUDON, N. H. – Sometimes, the sun shines even though it's raining.

Ask young Joey Logano. A late-race rainstorm stopped the LENOX Industrial Tools 301 after 273 of the scheduled 301 laps, giving Logano his first NASCAR Sprint Cup Series victory.

The 19-year-old rookie, who turned 19 on May 24, was probably the only happy driver when NASCAR announced the race official, but veterans of the sport would quickly tell the youngster to enjoy his win because "there's no telling how long it might be before he wins another one."

Bangor’s Donny Blanchard used a desperation move to pass Newburgh’s Paul Higgins in turn four on the last lap to win the 75 lap MAC Tools/New England Transmission Little Enduro feature on Saturday night at Speedway 95. Blanchard had started the event on the outside pole by winning the second qualifier, and moved into the lead past Newburgh’s Darren Durrell on lap 2. It wasn’t long before Blanchard and the rest of the leaders started lapping slower cars, and Blanchard got caught behind a pack of them, falling as far back as 10th spot before starting his charge back to the front. At the halfway point, Higgins was leading, followed by Derek Cook of Wilton, Darren Durrell, Hermon’s Andrew Crosby, and Blanchard in fifth. Blanchard caught the break he needed on lap 60, when Michael Shaw of Troy slammed into the front stretch tire wall, bringing out the third and final red flag of the event. On the restart, Blanchard started making his move to the front, with 15 laps remaining. When the flagman signaled one to go, Blanchard was on Higgin’s bumper, but had been unable to make the pass the lead. Going into turn three on the last lap, Blanchard dove to the inside and, using Higgin’s car to hold his own on the track, forced Higgins high and made the pass for the lead coming out of turn four. Higgins finished in second, with Darren Durrell in third. Derek Cook finished fourth on the track, but was disqualified in the post race inspection, giving the fourth spot finish to Hermon’s Andrew Crosby. Mike Ogden of Bucksport was fifth. Durrell and Blanchard won the qualifying races, putting them on the front row for the feature.
