Joey Logano claims Monster Energy Series victory at Richmond

Joey Logano claims Monster Energy Series victory at Richmond

The race will go down as one of the best of the Cup season, noteworthy in itself because temperatures in the low 90s made it a brutal 140 degrees in the cockpits of some of the 38 cars. "But, we were probably going to finish anywhere around 10th to 15th today, not all that awesome, but (sigh) we just had such awful luck".

"He's meant a lot to the sport in many ways, on and off the track".

On the racetrack, Earnhardt has had a hard start to 2017. He has a favorable starting spot and won at Richmond just a few years back, making him our pick to take the checkered flag and lock up a spot in the playoffs for all intents and purposes. He finished 30th, while Johnson placed 11th.

Much of that racing took place in the final 200 laps. They were second last week and the only place upward from there is a victory this weekend.

Consider that at Richmond, Earnhardt was fifth as recently as the fall of 2015.

"Guys just - there's got to be more respect shown".

The result was his first top 5 of the season and catapulted him from 16th to 11th in the championship standings. Busch followed but was levied with a line-commitment violation, effectively ending his chances to make a late push. (35) Jeffrey Earnhardt, Chevrolet, 392, 2. 36.

"I just got stuck (after the final restart) in a lane of cars that didn't go". He's always been at his best at the smallest and largest tracks on the circuit.

"The day race changes this track dramatically, and I think it makes it really racy", Keselowski said.


Who says second place is the first loser? "We finished right where we should have".

Kyle Busch had looked to challenge for victory but two pitlane penalties dropped him to 16th, while polesitter and stage one victor Matt Kenseth was 23rd following a late puncture. He's moved up to eighth in points, best of all drivers at Stewart-Haas Racing, and looks poised to win a race sooner rather than later. He completed the top three for Joe Gibbs Racing. So far this year, he's got four. Harvick should be among the top contenders today as well.

So a little birdie told me Dale Earnhardt Jr. might be retiring.

Joey Logano led home team-mate Brad Keselowski for a Penske one-two at the NASCAR Cup's visit to Richmond after going from last to first. Crew chief Paul Wolfe, who would be suspended otherwise, can work the next two upcoming races until that appeal is heard. His 18th career victory came in his 300th career start. His father, Dale Earnhardt Sr. had 676 by comparison. Hamlin and Harvick beat him off pit road during the caution that started the third stage and second half of the race. Earnhardt started 12th in his first race since announcing Tuesday he will retire from NASCAR Cup racing at the end of the season.

"This racetrack for whatever reason, it's been good to me", said Hamlin, who is looking for his fourth win at the half-miler he considers his home track. At the same time, they aren't part of the younger crowd of drivers such as Chase Elliott or Kyle Larson, due to both their age and experience levels.

"I knew how fast Brad was - he was the fastest auto", Logano said.

Here are the top 10 finishers.

Need a real dark horse? (25) Aric Almirola, Ford, 400, 28. 10. He'll have to overcome Kyle Busch, though, who's won this race four times. Clint Bowyer 3 9.
