Joey Logano Wins From The Pole At Michigan (VIDEO)

Pretty good weekend for Joey Logano. He posted the ninth-fastest qualifying time in NASCAR history to win the pole for Sunday’s race at Michigan, then battled back to take the lead with just over three laps to go when Mark Martin ran out of fuel and won his first race of the season and third of his career.

It puts him in good shape for a spot in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship. He’s 13th in points with three races left, but he’s just seven points behind Martin Truex, Jr. for the second wild card spot.

Kevin Harvick came in second while Kurt Busch was third. Paul Menard and Clint Bowyer completed the Top 5.

Logano and Busch dominated the race leading 94 of the 200 laps between them. Busch hasn’t won a race this season, but he’s been consistent and after the race at Michigan he moves from 11th to 9th in the standings.

Jimmie Johnson’s day ended early with engine problems. He still has a comfortable 41-point lead over Bowyer.

Jeff Gordon finished 17th and dropped another spot to 14th, and he has a lot of work to do in the next three races if he expects to make the Chase.

It’s a night race at Bristol next on the schedule.
