Joey Logano overcame an early miscue on pit road to capture the checkered flag in Sunday afternoon's Hellman's 500 at Talladega Superspeedway and advance to the round of eight in the Chase for the Sprint Cup.

Logano almost fell out of contention early in the race when he dragged the jack out of his pit box with him and had to ride around the track with it still under the car. He recovered and led 45 laps for his second consecutive fall victory in Alabama.

Austin Dillon, Martin Truex Jr., Chase Elliott and Brad Keselowski were eliminated from Chase contention.

Dillon finished tied with Denny Hamlin for the eighth and final transfer spot, but Hamlin's third-place finish gave him the best finish of the round and the tiebreaker.

Truex, who is in the midst of his best season and won the opening two races in the first round of the Chase to become one of the Championship favorites, blew an engine on Lap 41 and wound up well below the cut line.

Keselowski also blew an engine on Lap 144 after leading a race-high 90 laps. 

Brian Scott finished second, the best finish of his Sprint Cup careeer.

The Chase continues next weekend as the round of eight begins with the Goody's Fast Relief 500 at Martinsville Speedway.
