Joey Logano started Sunday’s Toyota Owners 400 in last place due to a transmission change, but came all the way back to end the race in first place at Richmond International Speedway.
Logano led twice for 25 laps, including the last 17 laps, to earn his second career Cup win at Richmond’s 0.75-mile oval. His previous win there came in 2012. It’s also his seventh consecutive top-10 finish at RIR.
It was Logano’s 18th career Cup win, his first since last November, and came in his 300th career Cup start. He becomes the seventh driver to win a Cup race this season.
Logano is the only driver with top-five finishes in all three short track races in 2017 (Martinsville, Bristol and Richmond).
