This victory is Logano first career victory at Darlington Raceway.
Byron, who recently extended his contract with Hendrick Motorsports, seemed as if he’d keep up his team’s dominant season over the final laps. However, Logano broke a 40-race winless run.
William Byron fell to 13th and was not happy with Logano’s tactics.
