Brad Keselowski - who won last week's event in Atlanta - finished second in his Discount Tire auto. The defending cup series champion held off Penske teammate Brad Keselowski for the win.

"What a great race", Logano said.

"You're wide open just trying to suck off of any cars you can that are in front of you and get a draft. My heart is still running".

Busch will start third at the Pennzoil 400 on Sunday.

"I'd like to have one more lap", Keselowski said. "But it gave us a lot to learn from today and I'm really proud of everybody to get a top five".

March has only just begun, and Busch has competed in just one Xfinity Series race behind the wheel of the #18 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota and two Truck Series races behind the wheel of the #51 Kyle Busch Motorsports Toyota so far this season, yet he has already matched his combined win total from last season in these two series.

Busch, the '09 Cup victor at Las Vegas, ran well inside the top 10 early and was leading under green flag conditions when he incurred a speeding penalty entering pit road on Lap 129. I would try to go low; they would go low. If they ran low, I couldn't run high; if they ran high, I couldn't get low. "Something happens at the end, and Brad becomes the fastest vehicle and he wins".

Kevin Harvick stayed in the lead off the pole, and hometown driver Kyle Busch moved up to second before falling back to fifth in the early going.

Logano ended up leading 86 laps and helped Team Penske to a 1-2 finish.

Bowman and Elliott posted the day's two fastest times on their second laps, but those times didn't count because neither driver made it to the line before time expired.

The race ran incident-free. After a lengthy cycle, He returned to the lead with about to laps remaining in the opening stage. Coming to pit road there ...

After taking two tyres on his stop, Keselowski, took the lead from Harvick. He then took the lead a few laps into the final stage and led 98 of 213 laps.

Everyone else lined up behind Busch had four fresh tires and the thinking was he wouldn't last long up front.

We recommend interesting sports viewing and streaming opportunities. "Now we've got two top fives to year, but we know we've got some more work to do". We are playing it smart. We haven't had any penalties, and we will just keep chipping away at it.

Extending his stint at the end of the second stage, Busch was able to stay out when the rest of the field pitted at the start of stage three.

Ricky Stenhouse Jr, Aric Almirola and Martin Truex Jr contested sixth place in the final laps, with Roush Fenway Racing's Stenhouse edging out the #10 and #19 cars.
