All eyes were on Brad Keselowski and Jimmie Johnson during the Ford EcoBoost 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway, the seasons final race of the 2012 NASCAR Sprint Cup season.
Marcos Ambrose led the field to green, although Joey Logano was the pole sitter for the race. Logano had to move to a back up car, and subsequently the back of a field when he was involved in a crash during final practice on Saturday.
It was neither Keselowski or Johnson who took the checkered flag at the end of the 267 laps, though.
Jeff Gordon won his second race of the year. His other win came at rain shortened Pocono. It was Gordon’s 8th career win and his first at Homestead.
Clint Bowyer finished in second, followed by Ryan Newman in third.
Matt Kenseth finished 18th in what would be his final race in the No.17 and with Roush Fenway Racing, while Joey Logano finished 14th in his final start with Joe Gibbs Racing.
Kenseth will be driving the No.20 Home Depot Toyota in 2012, while Logano will be moving to Pensk...
