It's probably not the way Chris Buescher envisioned winning his first Sprint Cup race, but he'll take it anyway. Buescher was declared the winner after NASCAR called Monday's race at Pocono with 22 laps left because of weather. He inherited the lead a few laps earlier during a cycle of green-flag pit stops and when dense fog moved across the track the race was red-flagged, then finally called wh
Managing fuel mileage and seizing on an opportunity on the final restart. That's the story of Kurt Busch's victory at the rain-delayed Sprint Cup race at Pocono Speedway on Monday. With Dale Earnhardt, Jr. and Chase Elliott battling for the lead on the 10th and final restart, Kurt Busch was able to find a way past both of them and led the final 32 laps for his first victory of the season, his 28
It was a fuel-mileage race that a number of drivers gambled on and lost including Joey Logano, who led 97 of 160 laps but finished 12th when he ran out gas with three laps to go. Kyle Busch inherited the lead, but instead of winning his fourth straight race he ran out of gas too and didn't even make it back to the finish line. The gas tank of Martin Truex, Jr. went dry too.
Finally a victory for Martin Truex, Jr. For the fourth race in a row Truex led the most laps, but Sunday at Pocono Raceway he not only led 97 of the 160 laps, but came thru with a win to break a 69-race winless streak and came just days after he lost his grandmother...
After taking that penalty for jumping a late restart that cost him the lead last week at Dover, Jimmie Johnson partly made up for it with his 64th career victory and third this season with a dominating day at Pocono. The only thing that could beat him would be himself and he didn’t let that happen two weeks in a row. Johnson led 128 of 160 laps and easily beat Greg Biffle to the finish line to ext
All three of NASCAR's national touring series are scheduled for events this weekend, with Sprint Cup and Camping World Trucks at Pocono Raceway and the Nationwide Series running at Iowa Speedway.
Joey Logano was the winner in June’s visit to Pocono, but he knows he needs to win another race during the regular season if he hopes to make the field for this year's Chase for the Sprint Cup championshi
Sprint Cup drivers head to Pocono Raceway this weekend for the first of two stops. It’s called the "The Tricky Triangle," but maybe even trickier this year. The 2.5-mile track has been repaved since last year. And from 500 miles both races this year have been reduced to 400 miles.
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 se
The Sprint Cup Series runs at Pocono Raceway on Sunday while the Truck Series is at Texas. Sunday’s 500 mile race is the first of two stops this season at Pocono. They’ll be back again in August.
The last two Sprint Cup races have been decided by fuel stategy and this week it could be the same thing.
Last Sunday, Brad Keselowski gambled on fuel to win at Kansas, coasting as much as he could the
