Logano claims first NASCAR Cup championship

Kevin Harvick: 'We Had a Daytime Racecar' Logano claims first NASCAR Cup championship

Three of the four Championship 4 drivers - Kyle Busch, Joey Logano and Martin Truex Jr. - will be starting in the top-5 on Sunday. It's the strongest final four since NASCAR adopted this format in 2014 - the four drivers combined to win 22 of 35 races this season - but the on-track action has been overshadowed time and again by off-track problems. "This team, Roger Penske, Todd Gordon, the pit crew". Hamlin has been successful at Homestead-Miami Speedway throughout his career, recording nine top-10s and two wins (2009, 2013) in 13 starts at the 1.5-mile championship track.

Homestead-Miami Speedway has already handed out one trophy, as Brett Moffitt became the deserving NASCAR Camping World Truck Series champion Friday night by winning the Ford EcoBoost 200.

"Ultimately, it's an upper-management decision, and that's part of it". "He passed me so fast". "I think I pulled a muscle", Logano said. The short exit distance also lessens the concern of a speeding penalty. "It hurts a little, and I'm going to miss all of the guys".

"They put us in a position to win if the caution didn't come out, and we had a shot there", Harvick said. I've already seen all the drama and people complaining. Here is a look at the four drivers who will compete for the 2018 Championship. "I'm behind what JGR did 100 percent".

Now that the season is over, Truex and crew chief Cole Pearn will move to Joe Gibbs Racing next season. But Gibbs decided this one and had Hamlin choose the second-best pit stall with his first selection.

"Hopefully, it all just comes back full circle".

"When it got dark, we just lost the rear grip and couldn't get off the corner", he said. He's NASCAR's 33rd different champion and first from CT.

"Anything like this always stops with me", Gibbs said. I hate it, too, because I denied Martin previous year. That's just one race down and two to go on NASCAR Championship Weekend.

Even Busch understood it was a big ask of Hamlin.

"That's probably too far, but it would sure be nice", Busch said.

Busch, the 2015 Cup champion, got what he wanted when Hamlin's team chose the No. 4 pit stall, which did not violate any NASCAR policy. Penske also this season was elected into the NASCAR Hall of Fame, won the Indianapolis 500 for a record 17th time and celebrated Team Penske's 500th victory as an organization.

"Good for the company, bad for the sport", he said. Logano blew past Truex through Turn 1 on Lap 256 of 267 and beat the defending champ to the finish line by 1.725 seconds.

Logano swept Saturday's two practice sessions and hit 171.701 miles per hour for the fastest lap in the second session.

Hamlin turned a lap at 173.863 miles per hour in the closing seconds of Friday qualifying to bump Busch from the top starting spot. "It's nothing we can't fix in short order".

It was Busch who said losing the title would be most disappointing if it went to Logano because Logano wasn't in the same league as the Big Three all season. Truex Jr. has done so in 10 while Harvick has done so in seven and Busch has done so in five. He starts 12th, lowest of the title contenders.
