FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - Joey Logano made a last-lap pass of Jeff Gordon during extra laps after a late caution Monday in a rain-delayed race at Texas, becoming the seventh different winner in as many Sprint Cup races this season,
Logano had a 2.2-second lead on teammate Brad Keselowski and was within a half-lap of taking the white flag, which would have guaranteed no extra laps. But then came the caution for debris after Kurt Busch's car brushed the wall and one of his tires tore apart.
On the ensuing pit stop, Gordon took only two tires and exited first. Both Team Penske drivers took four tires, but Keselowski missed a chance to become the season's first two-time winner when he was penalized for speeding on pit road.
NASCAR points leader Dale Earnhardt Jr. left the race early after a wreck.
Earnhardt drove into the rain-drenched grass and then had a fiery crash against the wall after just three laps in Monday's rain-delayed race. Earnhardt was trailing Aric Almirola on the frontstretch when the left side of his car suddenly went into the grass, and the No. 88 Chevrolet then shot across the track, bursting into flames after slamming into the wall.
Earnhardt, who climbed out of the car and was OK, says he didn't see the grass. He says it was just "a mistake" on his part.
