Michigan: Cup results

Joey Logano claimed his first win of 2013 for Penske Racing at Michigan International Speedway, stretching out his last drops of fuel to see him across the line a second ahead of Kevin Harvick.
Joey Logano claimed victory in the Pure Michigan 400 at the two-mile Michigan International Speedway on Sunday afternoon, his third career win in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series in 170 races and his first win since Pocono in June 2012 - making it his first victory for Penske Racing since his move from Joe Gibbs Racing over the winter.

Including this latest victory, two of Logano's wins have now come from pole position. It's the first time that the 23-year-old has won at Michigan in ten starts.

Kevin Harvick posted his 12th top-ten finish in 2013 and his tenth at Michigan in 26 starts here, while third-place saw Kurt Busch clinch his ninth top-ten finish in the same number of outings at the venue.

Jimmie Johnson took a bit hit in the championship points after being forced to retire early in the race with engine failure, leaving him in 40th position but still leading by 41 points over Clint Bowyer. Johnson's Hendrick team mate Dale Earnhardt Jr. also had a poor day and finished 36th after a tyre blow-out, while Joe Gibbs Racing's Kyle Busch had a similarly bad time of it with two spins and finally a power failure in the #18 that left him in 31st.
