Joey Logano, Ford harness new aero package for dominant NASCAR Cup win at Michigan

Team Penske motorist gets his initial win to lock in Chase spotIn a second competition that featured NASCARs new lower-downforce package, Joey Logano lowered a boom -- again.There was a single vital difference between Joey Loganos feat in Sundays FireKeepers 400 during Michigan International Speedway as well as his win May twenty-one in a Sprint All-Star Race during Charlotte. This a single counted in a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series standings as well as punched Loganos ticket in to a Chase.But it remained extravagantly clear that Team Penske already has a handle upon a aerodynamic configuration a sanctioning body is considering for 2017.Logano led 139 of 200 laps during a two-mile lane as well as dominated a period of restarts, except for a single example upon path 117 when competition runner-up Chase Elliott grabbed a lead from a motorist of a No. twenty-two Ford.Reasserting his superiority upon a Lap 154 restart, Logano hold a tip mark a rest of a way to win for a initial time this season, for a second time during Michigan as well as for a 15th time in his career. It was a 50th feat for Team Penske given switching to Ford equipment after a 2012 season.The tip 3 finishers boasted a youngest average age for a podium in Sprint Cup Series history -- 23.0. Logano is 26, Elliott twenty as well as Larson 23. The previous youngest average age for a tip 3 was 24.7 (three times, dating back to 1951 during Charlotte Speedway).Everyone did a great job of understanding what this package was going to do, Logano pronounced in feat vane. They put together a great competition car for me. It was a lot of fun racing with Chase there during a endPerfect execution. Weve been knocking upon a door for a win here all season. We got that All-Star win, though its great to get that win as well as lock ourselves in to a Chase.Logano had a comfortable lead over Elliott, a Sunoco Rookie of a Year leader, when Denny Hamlin popped his left rear tire upon a frontstretch as well as careened in to a inside wall near a entrance to turn one. NASCAR called a ninth counsel of a afternoon, environment up a final restart with 7 laps left.Logano chose a outward lane, as well as contingent third-place finisher Kyle Larson tried to pull Elliott past Logano in to a lead, though to no avail. Logano pulled away, maintained an advantage of scarcely a single second as well as won a competition by .889 second over Elliott, who was chagrined notwithstanding a career-best finish in a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.Elliotts waterloo essentially came during path 154, when, as a leader, he longed for a change as well as authorised Logano to recover a lead.You cant do dumb stuff as well as win these races, Elliott said. Completely my fault. The guys gave me a great car today. This total NAPA organisation has been operative so hard these past couple of weeks, as well as that a single was upon me.Like we said, you cant do dumb stuff to win these things as well as we did today.Asked to elaborate upon what he did wrong, Elliott replied, Putting it in a scold rigging would be a great start.Loganos teammate, Brad Keselowski, ran fourth behind Larson, with Kevin Harvick rallying from a 29th-place starting position to finish fifth. Carl Edwards, Tony Stewart, Austin Dillon, Jamie McMurray as well as Kurt Busch completed a tip 10.The seventh-place result for Stewart was his second-best this season. Stewart longed for a initial nine events of a year after an offseason back injury.Notes:-- Debris upon a grille of Kyle Buschs No. eighteen Toyota caused his engine to overheat as well as erupt in a fireball just past a 50-lap mark. Busch was a initial motorist out of a competition (in 40th place), marking a fourth straight event in that he has accomplished 30th or worse.-- Dale Earnhardt Jr. was a victim of a path 62 pile-up that proposed when Chris Bueschers Ford got loose upon a bottom of a lane as well as clipped a left rear of Earnhardts Chevrolet, that in turn wiped out a No. 47 Chevy of AJ Allmendinger. Earnhardt late from a competition in 39th place.-- Harvick increased his array lead over Stewart-Haas Racing teammate Kurt Busch to thirty points. Logano, a 10th motorist to win a Cup competition this season, jumped 3 spots to fifth.-- Larson's No. 42 Chevrolet failed a laser inspection station (LIS) after a race. NASCAR is taking a car to its research-and-development center in Concord, North Carolina, for serve evaluation. If penalties have been warranted, they will be voiced in a coming week.NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Race - FireKeepers Casino 400Michigan International SpeedwayBrooklyn, MichiganSunday, Jun 12, 2016 1.
