Logano Holds On To Win at Vegas

NASCAR Pennzoil 400 presented by Jiffy Lube

Joey Logano won the Pennzoil 400 presented by Jiffy Lube on Sunday.

His rival Kyle Busch was looking for the sweep after winning the Xfinity and Truck race earlier in the weekend.

Harvick lost three positions on pit road between the first two stages, one of those to Keselowski after Keselowski took only two tires. But the braking wasn't enough, and Busch was flagged for speeding in Sector 1. Restarting 16th after the final caution, Busch worked his way forward, running the fastest lap times on the track. He had an unscheduled pit stop on Lap 14 for a loose wheel that sent him a lap down.

Logano, who started 10th took the lead of the 267-lap race from Stewart-Haas's Kevin Harvick midway through the final stage and resisted Atlanta victor Keselowski's advances on the final lap to record the 22nd Cup victory of his career by 0.236 seconds.

"I thought this would be the toughest of the three, " Busch said. "Just ruined it for us. It's going to come down to timing and strategy". This week he was second and us first.

Logano moved past Keselowski and into the lead with 23 laps to go.

In the second half of the race, however, Harvick lost the handle on his No. 4 Stewart-Haas Racing Ford and fell to fourth at the finish. During the last 15 laps, there was a three-way battle for the lead between Joey Logano, Brad Keselowski and Kevin Harvick.

But the Democratic congressman said "we do not have the evidence" to start an impeachment procedure against the president. Mr Trump has faced a tough week politically with the spotlight back on the Russian Federation investigation.

"They've done a great job of getting the auto close". And we've never won it and that's the most important stat to have. "We had a fast race auto, but we could never get the balance, even in the race right there".

Harvick won last year's 267-lap race, but defending one's crown is always hard in NASCAR, particularly with stiff competition from veterans and new-comers alike.

"If we didn't have the speeding penalty on pit road, we would have won this race, but the guys gave me a great piece, and we were certainly fast there at the end", Busch said. Kevin Harvick and Kurt Busch rounded out the top five.

"I was really happy that we were able to stay out long", Busch said.

"It played out where we got clean air and it completely changed the complexion of the auto. It's all right. Real good day for Team Penske".

"There towards the end, the way this drafting package, these rules work, it was intense", Logano said.
