Denny Hamlin and Aric Almirola both led briefly, but it's has been mostly Logano out front.

It was an impressive display, but all that could have gone for naught if he hadn't been sharp on one final restart.

Joey Logano dominated Monday's rain-delayed FireKeepers 400 for his third win at Michigan International Speedway and the 23rd of his Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series career.

Logano won his second NASCAR Cup Series race of the season, holding off Kurt Busch and Martin Truex Jr.in overtime Monday at Michigan International Speedway. But it was a nailbiter at the end when Erik Jones' spin into the infield brought out the yellow flag setting up a two-lap restart.

"When I think of key races to win, obviously the crown jewel events that we probably all know, Brickyard, Daytona, Darlington, those type of racetracks that really stand out", Logano said.

Logano and Truex were up front on the restart, along with Kurt and Kyle Busch, and Logano pulled ahead in his No. 22 Ford.

Joey Logano celebrates with a burnout after winning the Firekeepers Casino 400 at Michigan Int'l Speedway.

Logano, not surprisingly, had a different view. "We got enough stage points today, we said hell with it, we don't need to get anything but the win".

"There's nobody better than Joey that I'd like to see on a green and white checkered controlling the race". That was a good one.

"Man, this feels so good", Logano said.

"We review all starts and restarts from the tower and we looked at it and felt like he was in the restart zone", Sawyer said.

Joey Logano emerged triumphant in an overtime finish at the NASCAR Firekeepers Casino 400 in MI.

It was the third win in a row for Ford at MIS.

Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series drivers have next weekend off. With rain moving the race to Monday evening, the drivers were provided with a "green" race track which provided dicey racing throughout the pack.

Logano won the first stage but had to pit toward the end of the second stage, enabling Austin Dillon to win that one. But eight laps later, Logano moved back to the lead.

Logano punched the gas, the backend stepped out, he left tire marks and he still put a gap on everyone by the time he got to the flag stand.

Joey Logano, then driving for Joe Gibbs Racing, ended up ending this longest pole-to-win drought in Cup Series history at 30 race by winning the following race at Pocono Raceway in his #20 Toyota.

The race was scheduled for 200 laps and 400 miles. With the exception of Kevin Harvick, no other driver seemed fully capable of taking the lead from the No. 22 by himself, which led to Truex and Busch working together over the final 15 laps. Truex had cut that to 0.153 after lap 195, and Kurt Busch was right there too - but that all became moot because of the last caution.

"I had a blast", Busch said.
