Logano wins in Richmond
RICHMOND, Va.—Joey Logano went from last to first in the Toyota Owners 400 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race at Richmond International Raceway on Sunday to claim his first win of the season in his 300th career Cup Series start.
Logano started the race in the back of the field after his team changed his transmission pre-race.
Brad Keselowski took runner-up honors to give Team Penske a 1-2 finish.
"Disappointed not to bring it home, but that's just the way these things fall with double-file restarts and half the field staying out and half the field not," Keselowski said. "You kind of take the good with the bad on those deals."
Denny Hamlin, Ricky Stenhouse Jr. and Kevin Harvick finished third through fifth, respectively.
"We were competitive and our car drove really good," Hamlin said. "We were just missing some of the speed from the 2 (Keselowski) and the 22 (Logano). They run a little more sideways than what we run, and just, they have more grip. I think we optimized our day, for the most part, and that's about as good as we could do."
