Logano Passes Keselowski on Last Lap for Atlanta Win

It looked like Brad Keselowski was going to record his first win for RFK Racing, until a late surge from former teammate Joey Logano. The defending NASCAR Monster Energy Cup Series champion had been testing Keselowski several times in the final laps but looked like he had used up his tires as he slipped back to fourth. Still, Logano found just enough on the last lap to secure the win and essentially lock himself into the playoffs.

It’s Logano’s first win at Atlanta, but one the Connecticut native identified as special for him. Logano raced in the Legends series in the Atlanta area before joining NASCAR. Logano told reporters when he was racing Legends on the quarter mile track inside the main speedway, he would dream about getting to race on the big track and now he has a win on that big track.


The winner of the past two races on the season, and defending winner of the Spring Atlanta race, William Byron, struggled Sunday. He raced his way to the top five before being caught in Atlanta’s version of the big one. Kevin Harvick spun while leading triggering the 12 car wreck on lap 190. Byron’s car was too damaged to continue. He finished 32nd.

The rest of the Hendrick crew didn’t fare much better. Josh Berry was collected in the same crash but was able to continue. Berry finished 18th. Kyle Larson finished 31st after being involved in a five car crash on lap 209. Alex Bowman finished 14th, his first finish outside the top ten this season. The tough day comes after Byron, Larson and Bowman were all docked 100 points by NASCAR for unapproved parts modifications.

Austin Hill continued his dominant start to the 2023 Xfinity Series season. The defending series champion took the checkered flag at Atlanta, notching his third victory in the first five races of the season. The race saw 11 cautions, the most ever for an Xfinity Series race at Atlanta.

There was an interesting turn of events during the first stage of the race. After debris flew off Josh Williams‘ Chevrolet, NASCAR ordered him to park his car. Williams complied in a sarcastic way, parking his car at the start-finish line and walking back to his pit. No word yet on a punishment for Williams, but Cup Series driver Denny Hamlin tweeted he would pay any fine Williams receives.

Sanchez had one of the speediest trucks on the day and looked to be headed to his first career victory until Eckes managed to pass him. It was the second career truck series win for Eckes.
