Joey Logano Wins Duck Commander 500

Joey Logano passed Jeff Gordon on the last lap to become the seventh different winner in as many NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races this season as he captured the rain-delayed Duck Commander 500 at Texas Motor Speedway Monday.
Fox Sports -- Joey Logano passed Jeff Gordon on the last lap to become the seventh different winner in as many NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races this season as he captured the rain-delayed Duck Commander 500 at Texas Motor Speedway Monday.

Logano and his Penske Racing teammate Brad Keselowski were clearly the class of the field, as they dominated the action at the 1.5-mile track. Collectively, they led 191 of 334 laps. But a late green-white-checkered set up a nail-biting finish, with Logano passing the four-time champion for the victory. Kyle Busch finished third, followed by Brian Vickers and rookie Kyle Larson.

The victory was Logano's fourth in 190 career starts and his second since joining Roger Penske's outfit prior to the start of the 2013 season. Logano took the lead on Lap 227 and never looked back, winning for the first time since Michigan last August.

Texas is clearly a track Logano likes. He finished fifth in this race a year ago and third here last November.
