NASCAR: Joey Logano finally wins at Nashville after a rain delay and five overtime restarts

Joey Logano brought the NASCAR Cup Series race at Nashville to a merciful end on Sunday.

Logano won the race after stretching his fuel as long as he could through a Cup Series record five overtimes. The 400-mile race went 331 laps at the 1.33-mile track thanks to a track record 16 cautions.

Logano was in first on the final restart and held off a hard charging Tyler Reddick for the win.

The two-time Cup Series champion somehow made it 110 laps on his final tank of fuel thanks to the numerous cautions that plagued the final stage of the race. Reddick passed multiple cars on the penultimate lap but couldn’t get past Logano on the final lap as the race finally ended.

The win is the first of the season for Logano and likely locks him into the playoffs. Logano entered the race 14th in points with just two top-five finishes and five top 10s. Now, he’s in the playoffs along with his Team Penske teammates Ryan Blaney and Austin Cindric after their wins earlier this season.
