Logano spoils Big Three party to win title

Logano spoils Big Three party to win title

Despite entering the NASCAR finale with the longest odds of the Championship 4 drivers, Joey Logano picked up the win at Homestead to win his first Cup Series championship. He was emotional, exhausted and still trying to comprehend how he'd chased down The Big Three to snatch his first career NASCAR title. "I don't know if it was a Busch Series or what it was, but he was a victor and driving a good auto for Joe Gibbs". You know, it's going to be a different team, a different cast of characters, and these guys were a special group, and I'm very thankful to get to work with all of them.

On the strength of a series-high 19 victories, Ford won the Monster Energy Series Manufacturer Championship. Gordon and the four drivers to do it between 1960-90 are all enshrined in the NASCAR Hall of Fame. He's NASCAR's 33rd champion and first from CT.

Sunday's race, like the ones in the few years prior, was fascinating from a strategy and tire wear perspective.

Harvick is one of the four drivers competing for a title today. Old enough but maybe not ready.

"I think when it's time to go, he's the guy", said Penske.

Penske brought Logano into the organization ahead of 2013 at a time when Logano had been struggling at Joe Gibbs Racing, delivering two wins in four full seasons.

Everything could have ended for Logano after that 2012 season. I got pushed around a lot. "Hell, he passed me so fast I didn't even have a chance to do anything". "It's insane to think that I'm living out my dream". "And that's what really surprised me: A team that didn't have a lot of weaknesses coming into the race really raced with nothing but weaknesses". You know, when you're confused, you don't know how to be better. "To go out that way and have a auto capable of winning the championship and be that close is something you've got to be proud of". The Team Penske driver led a race-best 80 laps in getting it.

The lifeline saved his career.

"I've got a badass job, and I remind myself of that. I am going to miss them all".

The transition wasn't exactly smooth.

The season championship was Logano's first after 363 starts. He thought by not backing down or pacifying Kenseth it would go away, but it only made things worse.

That was the most hard bump to date in Logano's climb. Here's our picks for which drivers we like to win. It toughened him up and taught him a valuable lesson in handing adversity.

Logano soundly defeated Kyle Busch, Kevin Harvick and reigning series champion Martin Truex Jr., in a finale Logano had dubbed "the Big Three and me". It marked the first time since 1999 the blue oval won both championships in the same season. He was likely susceptible to it, too.

Ford slammed the door on NASCAR's longest championship drought. "We executed down the stretch like nobody's business", Logano said.

"We did it", he said. We had it. I just needed time, that's all I needed.
