Paul Menard capitalized on Joey Logano’s flat tire with four laps to go, winning Saturday’s NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Michigan International Speedway.

Logano was leading at the time.

“Hate to wish bad luck on Joey,” Menard said in victory lane, “but we’ll take it.”

The victory was the second in the Nationwide Series for Menard and comes eight years after the first, which was at the Milwaukee Mile.

Logano’s was the final car on the lead lap and ended the day a hard-luck 16th.

“I ran over something at some point. It pretty much sucks,” he said after leading 43 laps. “I could tell it was going down on the back straightaway and had to take it in.

“I hate giving it away like that. The silver lining is we had a fast racecar and should’ve won the race. You win some like that, you lose some like that.”
