HOMESTEAD, Fla. -- Joey Logano proved that NASCAR's playoff system is about performance late in the year, as he turned a one-win regular season into his first career NASCAR Cup Series title.

Logano, who was fifth in the regular-season standings, capped a strong playoff run with two wins in the last four races, including capturing the victory Sunday in the Ford EcoBoost 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

"I told you we weren't (an underdog) and showed you why we were not," said Logano, who had declared himself the favorite a week ago. "We were the favorite like I told you before the race started."

The Team Penske driver took the lead from Martin Truex Jr. with 12 laps remaining for his first win at a 1.5-mile track since an October 2015 victory at Kansas Speedway. He outlasted the three other championship contenders, who finished 2-3-4. Truex placed second, Kevin Harvick finished third and Kyle Busch was fourth.

2. I can't stand Logano. I was hoping that Truex ...

would get close enough to wreck him.

3. Joey kicked some Truex ass today. Could not have been happier. Chase Elliott is my

new favorite driver...
