Logano edges Kurt Busch, Truex at Michigan

Rescheduled Cup race set for Monday at Michigan

Pole-sitter Joey Logano held off Kurt Busch and Martin Truex Jr.in overtime to win the rain-delayed FireKeepers Casino 400 at Michigan International Speedway Monday evening.

Joey Logano's victory at MI on Monday gave Team Penske its fifth Cup win of the season.

"You race this whole race, and you keep building that notebook up", Logano said.

Logano and Truex were up front on the restart, along with Kurt and Kyle Busch, and Logano pulled ahead in his No. 22 Ford.

Ford Performance marked history once again, winning the first ever race at Michigan International Speedway in 1969 with Cale Yarborough (Mercury) and Wood Brothers Racing, and on the track's 100th anniversary Joey Logano and Team Penske recorded Team Penske's 70th cup win with Ford.

"I don't know how we get a no-call on that, or maybe the rules are - I guess you can just do whatever you want on the restarts now."
"We'll have to remember that for next time".

You bet - but they might not have done anything differently if they were in Logano's situation at that moment. "Winning at MI means so much to Team Penske and Ford, being able to pull into this victory lane and see everybody means so much. I think Joey out there in victory lane said we are at 51-percent now for Mr. Ford". "That was my best shot at it", Kurt Busch said after the race. It was a good one.

NASCAR stated that the final restart was reviewed.

"Well, I was able to see it right in front of me", Joey Logano referred to his front row restarting position in the media center after the win. "The 3 (Austin Dillon) was there and got loose under him and then I got into him and ran out of real estate".

How Logano Won: He began the evening on the pole and led the race-high 163 laps with a fast vehicle. The previous mark of 162 was set in 1989 by Rusty Wallace - although Logano's race was extended by the overtime.

On the restart, Logano was first and took the outside lane, while Truex was second and on the inside.

The fast-paced action returns to Michigan International Speedway in August for a pair of races.

"That's more than what I was hoping to see for damage", said Busch after inspecting his vehicle. When pitting cycled through with 15 laps to go, Logano was back in the lead.

Martin Truex Jr., Daniel Suarez and Kyle Busch rounded out the top five. "That doesn't happen very often in our sport", said Logano, the defending series champion.

With just over 25 laps to go, the field began taking its final green flag pit stops.
