RICHMOND, Va. — From perfect weather and a big crowd to a classic short-track finish and the fisticuffs afterward, NASCAR hardly could have asked for more from its first visit to Richmond International Raceway.

RICHMOND, Va. — Joey Logano had a great view of a wild finish, until he saw an opening and made it wilder.
