Logano claims first NASCAR Cup championship

Truex 'Eye for an eye' if Logano is ahead

Denny Hamlin crashed the party and won the pole at Homestead-Miami Speedway. "This team, Roger Penske, Todd Gordon, the pit crew. But Logano's Ford stuck to the turn and he blew by Truex".

"I know that there's downturn, but I would just say that there's so many positives to this and I think NASCAR is working extremely hard", Gibbs said.

"We were awful for 10, 15 laps on new tires, and I was able to get a good restart at the end, luckily, and get out front - just I had nothing for him at the end. I couldn't be more proud of them".

Television ratings hit a low in 26 events this year, and the cumbersome rulebook, a vulnerable inspection process and NASCAR's officiating has received far too much attention of late. Furniture Row Racing will close its doors, with no primary sponsor to replace 5-hour Energy, which announced in June its departure at season's end. "I think the sport is in a good place and heading in a good direction". "I knew we had a short-run auto". We just made a couple of 30-lappers or so.

NBCSN handles all of the on-track sessions for the weekend until the very last Cup Series race of 2018, which will be carried on NBC. He finished second to Kyle Larson in the second stage and led 58 of the 267 laps, all told.

Team Penske has also been the cornerstone for Ford the last six seasons and Logano gave the manufacturer its first Cup title since 2004. "I think I pulled a muscle", Logano said.

"We definitely want to end on a high note and try to win, in 2013 we were in the same predicament where we hadn't won a race until the final race and we got it done, so hopefully it's our time to do it", Hamlin said.

"Our strong point was not the restarts tonight", he said.

Tens of millions of SMS messages laid bare as database gets exposed
At the time when the vulnerability was discovered by an independent expert in cybersecurity, it contains at least 26 million SMS messages.

Reigning series champion Martin Truex Jr. was in a similar position previous year and asked Hamlin, a fellow Toyota driver, to give him the first pit stall but Hamlin declined.

"For me, there's always some incentive in proving to people that you can do something that isn't what they think you should do", Harvick said. "He's been good. He hasn't necessarily performed to the level of The Big Three, and that's no shake on them at all, it's just the fact of the matter", Busch said.

Logano had been adamant he was the favorite to win the race, in part because he wasn't even supposed to make the final four and had just one regular season victory.

With Busch in the lead, the serendipitous yellow flag flew on Lap 247 when Suarez's Toyota went for a spin off the bumper of Keselowski's Ford.

Truex, who had vowed that he would be in an "eye-for-an-eye" situation racing Logano for the championship, never got the chance in the final few laps because of Logano's daring pass.

The victor of eight races this season, Busch had to settle for fourth at the finish.

"We weren't even close", said Busch, who used strategy to keep up with the other title contenders. The auto has speed on the short run and hangs decent on the long run.
