AVONDALE, Ariz. Joey Logano picked up his ninth Nationwide Series win of the season, and a wreck by Elliott Sadler helped Ricky Stenhouse Jr. move a big step closer toward a second championship.

Logano was dominant Saturday at Phoenix, but was under pressure late from Brian Vickers and Stenhouse. But as they closed in on the white flag for what should have been the final lap, Sadler imploded.

The championship contender was running 12th and racing hard too hard with Justin Allgaier and Cole Whitt when he triggered a three-car accident.

Sadler and Stenhouse started the race tied in the Nationwide standings. Now Stenhouse goes into Homestead up 20 points in the standings.

Stenhouse can clinch the title by finishing 16th or better in the finale.
