Joey Logano wins All-Star Race with $1 million prize at North Wilkesboro Speedway

Joey Logano dominates at North Wilkesboro Speedway, winning his second All-Star Race and $1 million, with limited drama and controversy.

Joey Logano showed his dominance at North Wilkesboro Speedway, leading all but one of the 200 laps to secure his second All-Star Race victory on Sunday night, taking home a whopping $1 million prize. Starting from the pole position after setting the fastest qualifying time on Saturday, Logano set a new record by leading more laps than any other driver in the race's 40-year history. This victory marked his second win in the All-Star Race, with his previous triumph coming in 2016.

In a race that lacked drama for the second consecutive year at the renovated track, Denny Hamlin finished in second place, followed by Chris Buescher in third. Kyle Larson, who arrived just an hour before the race after qualifying fifth for the Indianapolis 500 and flying to North Wilkesboro, finished in fourth place. Despite starting from the back of the field, Larson fell short in his quest to tie Jimmie Johnson for the most All-Star Race wins with four.

The race saw some early excitement on the second lap when Kyle Busch made contact with Ricky Stenhouse Jr., sending him into the wall. An upset Stenhouse retaliated by pulling his wrecked car into Busch's pit stall, where he climbed a ladder to confront Busch's crew. The altercation escalated, with Stenhouse throwing punches at Busch before the fight was eventually broken up.

Prior to the race, Larson made headlines with his last-minute arrival at North Wilkesboro Speedway. Fans cheered as he made his way to the track, waving to them along the route. NASCAR and FOX accommodated Larson's tight schedule by delaying the start of the race to ensure he could make it in time after his unexpected success in Indianapolis.

Despite the challenges of running both the Indianapolis 500 and the Coca-Cola 600 in Charlotte, North Carolina, Larson remains determined to take on the doubleheader. With his impressive performance in Indianapolis and his remarkable talent behind the wheel, Larson has proven himself as a force to be reckoned with in the world of auto racing.

Overall, the All-Star Race at North Wilkesboro Speedway provided fans with thrilling moments and unexpected twists, showcasing the skill and determination of the drivers who competed. As the season progresses, all eyes will be on Larson as he looks to continue his success on the track.
