Jeff Gordon dominated the Ford EcoBoost 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway, but the team employed the wrong pit strategy at the end of the race and finished only 10th.

Gordon led the most laps with 161, earned NASCAR’s best Driver Rating at 138.2, and posted the best average running position of 2.052. The team decided to stay out on old tires when nearly everyone else pitted. Frequent cautions spoiled that plan and when Gordon eventually came in for tires he was mired deep in the pack.

For the first time in his 16-year career as a fulltime NASCAR driver, Tony Stewart failed to win a race during a season. He finished 43rd at Homestead.

Stewart’s best finishes this year were a pair of fourth on the short tracks of Martinsville and Bristol. He finished fifth at Auto Club this spring, but that was his only other top-five all season.

Jimmie Johnson and crew chief Chad Knaus were called to the NASCAR hauler following their ninth-place finish in the Ford EcoBoost 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway for failing to follow a NASCAR directive.

During a late-race pit stop, they added a wheel spacer. This is legal to do, but rarely implemented because of the time that it takes. NASCAR wants teams to ask for permission before making this change and wanted to clarify that with the team. No penalties are forthcoming and Johnson retains his ninth-place position.

Two mistakes on pit road in the final 50 laps of the race proved costly for Joey Logano. The team dropped a lugnut and later failed to get the jack fully under the car with fewer than 20 laps remaining, which caused him to drop out of the top 10 to outside the top 20. He rallied to finish 16th, but that was the worst result among the Chasers.

An old auto racing adage proved correct where Logano was concerned. A driver has to lose a championship before he can win one and this was a valuable lesson learned by the No. 22 team.
