Joey Logano bumps William Byron late to win Goodyear 400 at Darlington Raceway

After William Byron squeezed him against the wall on a final restart, Joey Logano knew what he'd do if he got the chance to regain the lead.

Logano bumped Byron from behind on the next-to-last lap to win the Goodyear 400 at Darlington Raceway on Sunday.

Byron hit the wall in turn three and Logano went on to his first win of the season and first at the track "Too Tough To Tame."

"There's something to be said for an angry race car driver," said Logano, who broke a 40-race winless drought.

Logano, who started from the pole, had one of the strongest cars all day and was in front coming out of the pits before a restart with 25 laps left.

But Byron, who started low, forced Logano into the wall and out of the lead.

Byron fell to 13th. He said the restart was just close racing and Byron didn't deserve a hard hit on the rear bumper so close to the end.

"He slammed me so hard, it knocked all the right side off the car and sent me into the corner," Byron said. "He's just a moron. He can't win a race, so he does it that way."

Logano led 108 of the 293 laps and reached Victory Lane for the first time since winning on the dirt at Bristol in 2021.

Last year, Busch was fined $50,000 by NASCAR when at the Southern 500 here he drove his damaged machine into the garage, knocking over several cones and causing people in the path to scatter quickly.

Busch was asked why he stopped where he did. "Just couldn't make the corner," he countered
