Newman wins Cup race
AVONDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Ryan Newman's late gamble allowed him to win the Monster Energy Cup race at Phoenix International Raceway.
Newman skipped a tire-changing pit stop to take the lead from deep of the pack. He held on for the final two laps to break a 127-race winless streak. Newman also halted a 112-race losing skid for Richard Childress Racing.
Kyle Larson finished second for the third straight race. Kyle Busch was the leader for almost all of the final stage before taking third.
Larson and Busch went to the pits on the late caution caused when Joey Logano's car blew a right tire and slammed into the wall six laps from the finish.
Ricky Stenhouse was fourth, followed by Brad Keselowski.
