Martin Truex, Jr. Wins at Pocono
Three drivers have won 11 of this season's 14 NASCAR Monster Energy Cup races and on Sunday at Pocono Raceway Martin Truex, Jr. joined Kevin Harvick and Kyle Busch as multi-race winners. Truex held the lead on a restart with seven laps left and beat Kyle Larson by nearly two and a half seconds for his second win of the season.
Kevin Harvick has won five races this season and for a while it looked like he might make it six. He led a race-high 89 laps. Then it looked four-time winner Kyle Busch might win when he was first off pit road on Lap 126. But debris on the track brought the field together again and Busch pitted, while Truex stayed out and inherited the lead. He didn't give it up.
Busch later explained a similar situation came up last year when he stayed out on old tires and it cost him the race. This year's strategy didn't work either so they'll have to think it through next time they come to Long Pond.
Following Truex and Larson, Busch finished third with Harvick and Brad Keselowski completing the Top 5.
Michigan International Speedway is the next stop on the schedule next Sunday.
