NASCAR comes to Pocono

19 Juin 2017

- Blaney in Victory Lane. The team has won at least one race in each of the last six decades, but none since Trevor Bayne took the Daytona 500 in 2011.

Check out the last lap of Keselowski's Saturday XFINITY win, followed by Blaney's interview of Keselowski in Victory Lane, in the video below. But there is a side of him thats kind of the opposite that I think he could probably show the fans more to give them an opportunity to get to know him.”.

Kyle Busch dominated the race before winding up ninth at the checkered flag.

With the exception of Kyle Busch and Keselowski - who had pitted on lap 140 - the lead cars headed to the pits.

On the lap-148 restart following a caution for Kasey Kahne's crash, Harvick was sixth.

During the caution, only Kyle Busch and Keselowski chose not to put with the No. 2 auto only having one lap of competition on its tires, while the No. 18 vehicle was on old tires.

He turned a qualifying lap with the new engine.

"Super fast, raw speed - he's got it", Earnhardt said. "That was really cool of him".

"Hopefully, RP likes it", Wallace said. He enters this weekend's race with the points lead over Kyle Larson. On his final pit stop Wallace was again called for speeding.

Busch drove his No. 18 Toyota around the 2.5-mile triangular track at 179.151 miles per hour in 50.237 seconds during the final round of qualifying to capture the pole Sunday's race. Kyle Busch led a race-high 100 laps but has now failed to win his last five races after leading the most laps. You just don't get a true feel of what you're running down pit road.

Ricky Stenhouse Jr., after pitting late in the first stage, stayed out at the stage's end.

Lester was a sports vehicle driver who had little interest early in his career at chasing a NASCAR ride.

Most of the field, including Blaney, pitted and the race resumed with 13 laps remaining. Additionally, Martin has the most stage wins at 8 this season.

Harvick got around Kyle Busch for second on lap 152, then began stalking Blaney.

McMurray appeared to come away the worse for wear as the No. 1 auto caught fire. First, the team scaled back to a part-time effort where it selected a handful of races to contest based on tracks that best played to its strengths. "The smoke, I think, is the brake fluid coming out of wherever failed and onto the rotors". Its big and its got to be talked about and I understand that.”. I didn't even have a pedal to push on.

“Im trying to catch up to the knowledge the other guys have. Following the incident Earnhardt Jr. said, "I blame myself, I've been racing all my life and this isn't something that happens often but for some reason, it happened twice this weekend". "Haven't had a scare like that since 2000 at Watkins Glen".

Is this the week Joe Gibbs Racing gets its first win of the season? Definitely took a few runs there to get my marks down and get a little faith in the vehicle and what it was doing and where I needed to put it and we got faster each round.

(42) Kyle Larson, Chevrolet, 177.557 miles per hour. Before that, Willy T. Ribbs made three starts in 1986. Truex is first with 545 and Larson is second with 536.

Finishing just behind Jones in 4th, Kurt Busch, the driver of the number 41 auto won here at Pocono last June.

It's the Pocono 400 from Pocono Raceway in scenic Long Pond, Pennsylvania.

"It was a tough day, but we battled hard after having to start at the back due to an engine change after Saturday's practice", Truex said. Sunday's race will mark his first effort as a substitute for the injured Aric Almirola in the Richard Petty Motorsports No. 43 Ford.

The race is set to start at 2 p.m.
