AVONDALE, Ariz. — Joey Logano can now call himself a two-time NASCAR Cup Series champion.

The 32-year old outdueled fellow title contenders Ross Chastain, Christopher Bell and Chase Elliott Sunday at Phoenix Raceway in the final race of the 2022 season.

Logano, who started on the pole, took his final lead with 29 laps remaining and held off his Team Penske teammate Ryan Blaney for the race win and his second championship in four years. Though Logano did not have to win the race to win the championship — he only needed to finish ahead of the other Championship 4 contenders — just like with his 2018 championship, Logano was able to enjoy a double celebration.

Fellow championship contender Ross Chastain finished third as he furiously tried to chase Logano and Blaney down. Christopher Bell finished 10th and Chase Elliott finished two laps down in 28th after disaster struck the 2020 champion.
