Checkered Countdown: Top-Five Richmond Finishes

5 of 6

No.2 Four-car fight for the win (2014).

Late race restarts have the power of turning boring races into something memorable. It is the case of last year’s spring race in which after the last restart with ten laps to go a group of three cars broke away from the field. Matt Kenseth was the leader and despite being slower he would not let Jeff Gordon and Brad Keselowski get by him. The tough fighting at the front gave Joey Logano the opportunity to catch up with the lead group. While the other three drivers were beating and banging on each other Logano passed all of them and won his second race of the season. Tempers flared afterwards between many drivers in a pure short track fashion.
