Joey Logano wins first race of season at wild Richmond

That short run at the end. half the field came [to pit], half the field didn't. "But when you're the trailing auto, you're looking at a rear spoiler so you're not 100 percent sure where that box is". Kenseth became just the second Joe Gibbs Racing driver to win a stage this season, joining Kyle Busch, who won the first stage of the Daytona 500. Did he take their advice? "But I'm not wired that way. I needed 100 percent at the end, though". "The demands are high, the opportunity to leave a race auto and do something else because of the financial situation they are fortunate enough to be in allows them to pick and choose their careers a little bit differently". His answer was, "A caution on Lap 8".

Busch was running second to Joey Logano with 23 laps remaining after Ryan Blaney brought out the final caution of the race. Almirola has three top-10 finishes in 10 career Richmond starts and was an admirable 21st and 17th there a year ago during a low point for his RPM No. 43 team. "It looked like we were in pretty good shape, and then obviously to have the good pit stops and all of that, I don't really know if you call that stealing", said Logano, who has two victories and nine top-10 finishes at Richmond in 17 career starts.

"The day race changes this track dramatically, and I think it makes it really racy", Keselowski said. "If it was any shorter, we probably wouldn't have won". "And if it was any longer, we wouldn't have won". "I don't even have to preach it".

Kyle Larson stayed out under green but stood no chance for Logano's fresh tires.

The Wood Brothers crew used every possible pit stop opportunity to work on the vehicle, which finished Stage 2 in 16 place. "The cars are getting better. You get such a good experience through your cellphone, so the way we measure attendance and we measure TV ratings and all that - it's always skewed because we live in a different world now". But it nearly didn't happen with Stenhouse running into the wall early and bending the slitter bar.

"It was a no brainer there to stay out that last caution".

"It was a good effort", he said. ". The key for us is to keep plugging away, never give up and keep fighting". "I think it's great. You just can't ever give up". Dale Earnhardt Jr., was busted for speeding in the first stage. It's a far cry from his miserable year last season at now-defunct HScott Motorsports, a place where Bowyer earned just three top-10 results all season.

Junior complained about the on-track issues to crew chief Greg Ives, but the issues remained the same seemingly all day.

Keselowski got stuck behind some slower cars on the restart, letting Logano pull away.

The move paid off with a caution about 20 laps later, but unfortunately for Earnhardt, he was part of the caution, as Jimmie Johnson ran him into the wall coming out of Turn 2.

"We know where we need to get better", Hamlin said. "He said he didn't get any notice that he had a auto outside".

Pole-sitter Matt Kenseth led the first 163 laps, winning Stage 1, and raced in the top 10 all day until a flat tire with 35 laps to go.

But, actually scheduling the race on a Sunday afternoon is better for the teams since for the majority of the time, the practice sessions and qualifying itself are run in daylight.

"I don't know what to do", a discouraged Earnhardt said. You have to have a faster auto, and we just -- you know, I'm optimistic.
