But, if you can't clear them you lose 2-3-4 spots, every time.
"This is a big deal for us at Ford Motor Company, all our employees and fans around the world", Ford Performance NASCAR Program Manager Pat DiMarco said. We got second today.
Joey Logano emerged triumphant in an overtime finish at the NASCAR Firekeepers Casino 400 in MI. Logano got the jump and pulled out to the lead, but Busch was closing in from the third position. Daniel Suarez 5. Kyle Busch 6. It was the pole sitter's second win of the season, and the 23rd of his career in a Cup auto.

The 29-year-old edged out Kurt Busch and Martin Truex Jr. We'll get it. It gives us reason to smile and be happy.
"The 22 (car) went like a whole vehicle length before the restart zone", Truex said of Logano's final restart. Logano was actually the first driver to win from the pole all season - although all three of his career wins at MIS were as the pole victor. I don't know how you get away with that.
It was the third win in a row for Ford at MIS. There is no better feeling than that. It's pretty hard to tell from this video, despite how far out Logano's vehicle is.

With less than ten laps remaining in the stage, Larson was the first to pit under green, followed by Logano and Team Penske ally Brad Keselowski, but the latter suffered a crewman safety penalty and had to do a pass-through. That's two fewer than Penske had all of previous year, when Logano won the series title. He will be joined up front by Aric Almirola. "I'm very proud of the effort that we've had really the last few weeks, from the execution side". Behind him, Kevin Harvick took second. With rain moving the race to Monday evening, the drivers were provided with a "green" race track which provided dicey racing throughout the pack.
Bowyer, the event's defending victor, had a top-five vehicle through much of Stage 2, but on Lap 130, his No. 14 Ford broke loose as he was trying to steer away from Jones and backed into the outside wall. Then the 22 went like a whole auto length before the restart zone. By the end of the fourth lap, Logano was back in front. The yellow flag forced overtime and two laps of white knuckle driving. Logano got the edge on the restart and drove on to victory. "He thinks his way through a lot of situations, and I think the more information you give him at that point - that was where I got to, was OK, let's give him all the information we can so he can make good decisions about he wants to handle this last restart".
