Newman skips late pit stop, stuns NASCAR field in Phoenix

I find their promotion-for-the-promotion livery rather soothing, like Lisa Frank if she took a chill pill and muted a lot of the neons.

"There's I guess a lot of distractions that we don't typically have", Logano said. That decision proved to be wise, as he would finish third.

Newman earned his first victory in four years and also the first for Richard Childress Racing since 2013, the year before Newman joined the team. "I could easily have four wins right now". When the race restarted on Lap 32, it was still Logano in the lead followed by Larson, Earnhardt Jr., McMurray, Ryan Blaney and Keselowski. I'm just proud of these guys.

"I'm just glad we finally got a pole here", Logano said. With 122 laps remaining, he got by Larson for second. Busch restarted 36th, one lap down.

"Everything's great; we got a top-five, and that's what we set out to do today, and we got a third, so we should be pumped about that and how good this Camry ran today", Busch said.

Elliott was the leader at the end of the second 75-lap stage, with a almost three-second lead on second-place Larson.

The Weather: it was 90 degrees at race time, rising to 94 by the end of the race, making it one of the hottest races in Phoenix history.

Pujara and Vijay however carried on to take India past the 100 run mark and keep the initiative with the hosts. Nathan Lyon delivered 46 overs and was clearly bothered by the cracked callus on his spinning finger.

Logano had the fastest lap through two rounds, but the top 12 have to start from scratch and qualify in the third round. Elliott came out with the lead and Larson was second.

Martin Truex Jr., last week's victor in Las Vegas, had an air gun jam on a pit stop when he was running around the top 10.

Logano said his right front blew, causing him to crash with five laps to go and setting up the final restart.

Larson was second at the end of the first stage and Elliott was fourth behind Keselowski.

Finishing sixth through 10th were Kevin Harvick, Daniel Suarez, Erik Jones, Jimmie Johnson and Denny Hamlin. But once Elliott and Larson got by Logano early in the second stage, they maintained their positions throughout the second 75 laps.

With a gutsy call to stay out on old tires, Ryan Newman went to claim victory in the Camping World 500 at Phoenix Raceway to snap a 127 race winless streak.

The latest second-place effort by Larson did present him a tangible benefit: He leapfrogged Brad Keselowski atop the Cup Series points standings, the first time the fourth-year driver has held the top spot.
