FORT WORTH, Texas -- With a significant lead and the laps winding down, Joey Logano kept thinking about getting to the white fla Antworten

FORT WORTH, Texas -- With a significant lead and the laps winding down, Joey Logano kept thinking about getting to the white flag. Marius Wolf Dortmund Jersey . Less than a half-lap from finally seeing that wave at Texas on Monday, a caution changed everything -- though only for a few extra laps. "My heart dropped. I got really angry instantly," said Logano, who was in the third turn on the 333rd of 334 scheduled laps when the caution happened. "Youve got to go out there and win at that point, figure out how to do it." Logano still got the victory, just in a more exciting fashion. He passed Jeff Gordon on the last of 340 laps after a green-white-checkered finish in the Sprint Cup series version of overtime. When Kurt Busch slammed into the wall, spewing debris on the track, Loganos 2.2-second lead over teammate Brad Keselowski was gone and he didnt get to take the white flag that would have guaranteed no extra laps. On the ensuing pit stop, Gordon took only two tires and exited first. Both Team Penske drivers took four tires, and Logano got a splash of fuel. But Keselowski missed a chance to become this seasons first two-time winner when he was penalized for speeding on pit road and finished 15th. "I was just trying to get a little too much on pit road," Keselowski said. "Were in it for wins. Were not in it for second. Second or 15th is the same for us." The 23-year-old Logano got his fourth career victory, and Jeff Gordon took over the series point lead from Dale Earnhardt Jr., who had an early crash. "He crossed over and got into the back of me pretty good," Gordon said of the last lap with Logano. "At that point, I was just thinking, I just want to finish. Looked out my mirror, those guys were racing hard behind me. A great, great second-place finish for me." Here are five other things that happened in the rain-delayed race at Texas: 7 WINNERS FOR 7 RACES: Logano became the seventh different winner in as many Sprint Cup races this season, when new rules for the championship Chase put an increased emphasis on winning. Team Penske joined Stewart-Haas Racing as the only teams with multiple winners this season. JUNIORS MISTAKE: Earnhardt finished last for the first time in seven seasons with an early mistake that also made a long day for Hendrick teammate Jimmie Johnson. Only 13 laps into the race, Earnhardt drove his No. 88 Chevrolet halfway into the rain-saturated infield grass before it shot across the track and slammed into the wall in a fiery crash. Debris and mud from that damaged Johnsons windshield and front left side. "It was kind of surreal what happened," said Johnson, who later had a right rear tire issue and finished 25th. Earnhardt tweeted: "That wasnt fun. Sorry 2 the fans of the 88 team. Feel bad for my guys and the 48 team also. Made a mistake there that was costly for every1." The last time Earnhardt finished 43rd was the 2007 fall race at Phoenix -- a span of 222 races. HARVICKS BLOWN ENGINE: Kevin Harvick has finished 36th or worse in four of the five races since winning at Phoenix the second week of the season. He started third at Texas, but completed only 28 laps because of a blown engine right after a restart and wound up 42nd. "Its frustrating. I dont know what else I can say," Harvick said. "I didnt get any indication that anything was going wrong." FLAPPIN IN THE WIND: The race started with 10 caution laps to make sure the 1 1/2-mile high-banked track was ready for racing after being postponed Sunday by rain. There were jet dryers on the track during those laps, and the high-pressure air from those affected the hood and roof flaps on several cars. Keselowski made four trips down pit road after his hood popped up and his crew made repairs. "It was one of those freak deals," Keselowski said. Gordon said one of the jet dryers "about blew all of us over." NASCAR put all the cars in their original starting spots. "Im not sure whats more odd, if that happened or NASCAR allowed those guys to repair that thing," Gordon said. "Had a piece of concrete fly through my car once at Martinsville. I dont ever remember them letting me repair the car." STEWART LEADING: Tony Stewart was the polesitter and led laps for the first time season, and not only the first 10 laps during that competition caution to start the race. He 74 of the first 76 laps, and went on to a 10th-place finish. Those also made him the career leader for laps led at Texas Motor Speedway with 801. Axel Witsel Dortmund Jersey . The Goldeyes (10-7) lost 4-1 to the Saltdogs (8-9) Sunday afternoon before 5,834 sizzling fans at Shaw Park. The loss drops Winnipegs record to 3-4 during this past weeks seven-game homestand. Thomas Delaney Jersey .200. His solution to his hitting woes was business in the front and a party in the back."That would be a mullet," Norris says. . PETERSBURG, Fla.( - The New York Knicks will try to end a 10-game losing streak Sunday evening when they welcome the Milwaukee Bucks to Madison Square Garden. The Knicks havent won since a Dec. 12 decision in Boston. New York hasnt won at MSG since Nov. 22 versus the Philadelphia 76ers, a span of nine consecutive games. The most recent setback came on Friday night, at home, against the red-hot Detroit Pistons. The Knicks fell, 97-81, but they fought back from a 33-point fourth-quarter deficit. J.R. Smith tallied 22 points, while Cole Aldrich added 11 points and 14 rebounds for New York, which has lost 20 of its last 21. They were the only two double-figure scorers for the Knicks with Carmelo Anthony sitting out due to his lingering knee issue. The Pistons shot 50 percent from the field. If you dont get offended by somebody scoring on you, I dont know what to tell you, Smith said of his teams defense. Anthonys left knee soreness cost him his third game this season and head coach Derek Fisher acknowledged before Fridays contest there could come a time when the All-Star gets shut down for quite a while. From the conversations Ive been a part of, I think everybody is smart enough to realize, calendar wise, timing wise, that there may come a point that thats the decision that needs to be made, Fisher said Friday. Anthony hasnt made that decisiion yet and his status for Sunday is unknown. Manuel Akanji Dortmund Jersey. The Bucks had a two-game winning streak halted Friday with a home loss to a division rival. The Indiana Pacers waltzed into the Bradley Center and left with a 94-91 victory. The Bucks led by as many as seven in this one and carried a 68-66 advantage into the fourth quarter, but Indiana took the lead for good on Donald Sloans 3 with 9 1/2 minutes remaining. Milwaukee was just 9-of-24 from the floor in the fourth quarter, including 1- for-7 on 3-pointers. We couldnt get stops when we needed to and we missed shots we normally make, said Bucks coach Jason Kidd. Brandon Knight had 20 points for the Bucks. Zaza Pachulia contributed 12 points and 14 rebounds in the loss and John Henson scored 14 with 10 boards. Khris Middleton and O.J. Mayo both finished with 11 in the loss. Before the game, Kidd announced that center Larry Sanders will be out for personal reasons with no timetable for his return. Sanders will be away from all team activities. Its just personal, Kidd said. Theres nothing I can give you more. Thats the way the question will be answered. Forward Ersan Ilyasova is still out following a concussion. The Bucks beat the Knicks on Nov. 18 in Milwaukee, but the Knicks are 8-2 in their last 10 versus the Bucks. New York has won five straight as the host in this series. ' ' '
