Joey Logano won an entertaining version of NASCAR's annual All-Star race by snatching the lead away from Kyle Larson with two laps remaining Saturday night in the $1 million exhibition event.

Larson had raced his way into the main event earlier Saturday by beating Chase Elliott in a stirring last-lap door-to-door battle to the checkered flag. He then rocketed to the lead in the All-Star race by using four fresh tires to drive to the front on the restart of the 13-lap dash-for-cash.

Logano eventually caught him and Larson tried several times to hold him off, but as the two raced side-by-side, Larson smacked the wall and the damage took him out of contention.

Logano then cruised to the win ahead of Team Penske teammate Brad Keselowski, who suggested much of Saturday night's format.
