For one circuit left, Joey Logano chased down William Byron and bumped him out of the way to claim his first NASCAR Cup Series race of the 2022 season.
On Lap 268 of 293, Byron took the chance to take the lead, but Logano was swiftly closing up on him as the race progressed.
Logano raced up alongside Byron’s No. 24 Chevrolet during Turn 3 with one lap left, nudged him from behind and up the circuit to take the lead.
Logano beat Tyler Reddick by 0.775 seconds to emerge victorious at Darlington (S.C.) Raceway on Sunday, ending a 40-race winless drought.
Logano’s latest Cup title came in March at the Bristol Dirt Race. It was also his 28th professional victory.
“Yeah, you’re not going to put me in the wall and not get anything back,” Logano said of his run-in with Byron. “That’s how that works. Man, super proud of (my) team getting a victory here in Darlington. I’ve never won here in a Cup race before.
“So proud of this race team. Great execution all day long. I’ll tell you what, the coolest thing is getting this car into Victory Lane. This is the car (paint scheme) where it all started for me back in ’95 in a Quarter Midget. Really, honestly, all the young kids racing out there right now, this could be you.
“I’ve got Silver City Quarter Midget Club on the back, all the cool things that went along with this car, and we got it into Victory Lane. It just means so much to me.”
After starting from the back of the grid, Justin Haley finished third, Kevin Harvick finished fourth, and Chase Elliott finished fifth.
Chris Bell, Michael McDowell, Ricky Stenhouse, Austin Dillon, and Daniel Suarez rounded out the top ten.
