Aric Almirola dominated Stage 1 of Saturday’s NASCAR Cup Series Pocono Organics 325 at Pocono Raceway, but it was Joey Logano who snagged the lead on a late set of cautions and never relinquished in back as he took the Stage 1 win.
Almirola would finish the Stage in second, while last week’s race winner Ryan Blaney was third.
Kyle Busch and Chase Elliott capped off the top-five finishers in the Stage.
Kurt Busch, Matt DiBenedetto, Brad Keselowski, Alex Bowman and Erik Jones also scored Stage Points.
Quin Houff went spinning with nine laps left in the Stage and hit the wall. Houff would cut a tire on the way back to pit road damaging his No. 00 StarCom Racing Chevrolet even further.
