Dale Earnhardt, Jr. Sweeps Pocono [VIDEO]
A clean sweep of the season series at Pocono Raceway for Dale Earnhardt, Jr. He led the final 14 laps but needed a great restart with three laps left against Kevin Harvick to claim his third win of the season.
His 22nd career victory puts him into a tie with Jimmie Johnson and Brad Keselowski for most victories this season and puts him into the lead in the Chase standings with five races left before the start of the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship.
Harvick finished second followed by Joey Logano, Clint Bowyer and Greg Biffle.
Jeff Gordon came in sixth a week after winning the Brickyard 400. He led a race-high 63 laps and passed 24,000 career laps in the Number 24 Chevrolet at Pocono, including 1,000 laps led.
Next up is the season’s second road course race at Watkin’s Glen.
