Duck Commander 500: Joey Logano wins race, Jeff Gordon comes 2nd

The Duck Commander 500 reset on Monday proved to be an advantage for the young Joey Logano as he takes the flag - a first win for the 23-year old this season. Logano made a last lap pass of veteran racer Jeff Gordon during the extra laps.

In the earlier laps, Logano had a clear shot of winning, but a caution of debris from Kurt Busch’s car damaged tires and forced the extra laps.

"When you've got like 40-something laps after the last pit stop and a pretty sizeable lead, all you're thinking is where's the white flag, where's the white flag," Logano told ESPN. "Then you go into Turn 1, and you see the 41 up against the wall, please, no caution. ... You get so mad that you can barely control yourself."

After the pit stops, Gordon replaced two tires and restarted first. Logano, now fresh with four tires, lined up third. At lap 262, Logano blazed his Ford past Brian Vickers and started chasing Gordon. Gordon did manage to fend off Logano, but the latter had too much car-power and skill.

Logano dashed at the front stretch and eventually grabbed the checkered flag. Gordon finished second and Kyle Busch finished third.

"He crossed over and got into the back of me pretty good," Gordon said. "At that point, I was just thinking, I just want to finish. Looked out my mirror, those guys were racing hard being me. A great, great second-place finish for me."

Dale Earnhardt Jr. was also in the race. But a sharp turn into the wet infield grass forced his car into the wall. His car caught fire, but he was unharmed. On Twitter, Earnhardt Jr. said that it was a costly mistake.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
