Joey Logano's late gamble pays off with win

Joey Logano started Sunday's Toyota Owners 400 in the 37th position, setting a track record for a driver who went on to win at Richmond.

Joey Logano's late gamble paid off in a big way as the Team Penske driver led the final 17 laps to win Sunday's Toyota Owners 400 at Richmond, despite starting the race from the 37th position. 

Logano, along with team-mate Brad Keselowski, made a bold decision to stay on the track with 34 laps remaining while the leaders pitted, hoping for another caution to wave for a chance at fresh tyres. The flag came just 10 laps later when Ryan Blaney brought out the ninth and final caution of the day. 

Logano was able to pull away from Keselowski for his first win of the season in his 300th career start. 

Aided by quick pit stops and fast restarts, Denny Hamlin overcame electrical problems with his dash near the end of Stage 1 and led 59 laps en route to a third-place finish. 

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. finished fourth, followed by Kevin Harvick and Jamie McMurray.
