Brad Keselowski Wins at Pocono For His Second Win Of The Season [VIDEO]
It was quite a week for Brad Keselowski. There were some doubts whether he’d be able to drive at all on Sunday in the Sprint Cup race at Pocono after crashing into a wall earlier in the week at Atlanta. And even with a broken left ankle Keselowski was determined to drive the number 2 Miller Lite Dodge. And boy did he ever. He pulled away from Kurt Busch on a late restart and held on for his second victory of the season. And now in the top 20 in points his second win of the year gives him the number one wild card spot.
Kyle Busch had a shot at his fourth victory of the season up until that final restart. He settled for second.
Brother Kurt Busch came in third with Jimmie Johnson and Ryan Newman completing the top five.
The race was interrupted by rain for an hour and 40 minutes and up until the rain came Joe Gibbs cars dominated. Pole sitter Joey Lagano led 39 laps, Denny Hamlin led a race high 65 and Kyle Busch led six until the red flag came out just past the halfway point. Hamlin finished 15th while Logano was way back in 26th.
Carl Edwards holds on to the points lead with Jimmie Johnson 9 points back.
Watkins Glen is up next on the schedule.
