Four tires were better than two and Joey Logano was better than all the rest Monday.  Logano was the class of the field when it mattered leading a race high 108 laps and scoring a convincing overtime win in the rescheduled NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Duck Commander 500 at Texas Motor Speedway.

Logano took the lead for the final time on lap 303 and had a comfortable lead in the closing laps but a caution with less than two laps to go set up a green-white-checkered flag finish that saw Logano restarting third.

Logano led the lead group to pit road after the final caution.  Jeff Gordon took two right tires and was able to win the race off pit road; Brian Vickers also took only two and was second. Logano was third, his Penske Racing teammate Brad Keselowski fourth both the first with four tires. However Keselowski was nailed for speeding off pit road by NASCAR and forced back in giving up a chance for a win.  Kyle Busch slid into fourth, Biffle was fifth. MORE>>>
