Logano claims first NASCAR Cup championship

Kevin Harvick: 'We Had a Daytime Racecar'

Next up is the Cup title race Sunday at Homestead-Miami Speedway that pits reigning series champion Truex against Harvick, Kyle Busch and Joey Logano in a winner-take-all finale.

"We were the favorite". Logano's chances may be tough as he has made what may be an enemy in fellow championship four driver Martin Truex Jr.

Fans hope the four championship-contending cars are legal but won't know for sure until the cars have been inspected, long after the champagne celebration is over, because the culture of cheating in NASCAR lingers.

Hamlin, meanwhile, won the pole for the second consecutive year and in a meaningful race for his team.

Harvick has made the final four every year but once since 2014, the year he won the finale and the championship.

"I don't think a whole bunch transfers over".

Busch was gifted the coveted No. 1 pit stall Saturday when Joe Gibbs Racing made the dubious decision to force teammate and pole victor Denny Hamlin to pass on the top spot. "Maybe I'll even get a thank you text", Hamlin said. I needed 15, 20 more laps, and that's just the way it goes. Penske also this season was elected into the NASCAR Hall of Fame, won the Indianapolis 500 for a record 17th time and celebrated Team Penske's 500th victory as an organization.

"Honestly, it really hasn't been that good", Harvick said.

Busch and Harvick have matched each other win-for-win all season, and even though NASCAR penalized Harvick's team, Busch is not alone in wondering if the entire season is tainted. That's just the way it goes.

But he anxious that helping Busch for one race may have made the practice acceptable.

#18 Kyle Busch has had a very successful season.

"So just proud of them, and we're going to celebrate no matter what tonight". Truex has four wins this season, and looks to get his fifth on Sunday.

The title is redemption for Logano, who could have washed out of the sport when Gibbs cut him from the team. The 28-year-old CT racer was criticized for his aggressiveness, and Truex promised he'd prevent Logano from winning the Cup, but Logano insisted he made the necessary move to win a championship.
