Joey Logano overcame a disastrous first pit stop Sunday at Talladega to win and advance to the next round of the Chase for the Sprint Cup. The victory was an upset by Penske Racing, who had fallen behind the competition in recent weeks. Teammate Brad Keselowski dominated the race until his engine expired, but Ford otherwise overachieved after losing ground to both Toyota and Chevrolet in recent weeks.

The next three races will set the stage for the final showdown in Miami to determine which driver will hoist the Sprint Cup at the end of the campaign. Austin Dillon, Chase Elliott, Keselowski and Martin Truex Jr. will be on the outside looking in.
