Logano edges Busch, Truex

BROOKLYN, Mich. (AP) — Joey Logano won the pole in qualifying and then led for more than three-quarters of the actual race.

It was an impressive display, but all that could have gone for naught if he hadn’t been sharp on one final restart.

Logano won his second NASCAR Cup Series race of the season, holding off Kurt Busch and Martin Truex Jr. in overtime Monday at Michigan International Speedway. Logano was trying to hold on to a dwindling lead over Truex and Busch with five laps remaining, but around that time, Erik Jones went onto the grass, bringing out the caution flag that forced overtime.

“As the leader, you’re like, ‘Ohhhh.’ Right?” Logano said. “But the race fan part of me is like, ‘Heck yeah, this is going to be a great race for everyone to watch.'”

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

“He jumped the restart by over a car length,” Truex said. “I don’t know. I guess they don’t enforce those rules anymore. We’ll have to remember that for next time.”
