5 months agoJoe Gibbs Racing driver Kyle Busch was able to lead 56 laps at the Gander RV 400 at Pocono Raceway on Sunday, and he picked up a win in Stage 1. However, he was shuffled down to ninth place when the dust cleared after Sunday's race, snapping his two-race win streak at the track. He had also won three of the past four races at the Tricky Triangle. Next up is a date with the road course at Watkins Glen where Busch has two wins, six top-5 finishes, 12 top-10 showings and 247 laps led, most of any driver. He also has a stellar 9.36 Average-Finish Position, so he'll be a popular fantasy target again next weekend.--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoBallerSource: NASCAR.com

5 months agoPenske Racing driver Joey Logano limped home in 13th place in Sunday's Gander RV 400 at Pocono Raceway, and he did not come away with any stage points. Despite being blanked on Sunday, he still has a Monster Energy Cup Series-leading 226 stage points, including seven stage wins. The next best driver is Stewart-Haas Racing's Kevin Harvick with 196 stage points and four stage wins. Logano will look to add to his total next week on the road course at Watkins Glen. In 10 career Cup Starts at the New York run he has a win, three top-5 finishes, five top-10 showings and nine laps led with a 16.3 Average-Finish Position and one DNF.--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoBallerSource: NASCAR.com

5 months agoStewart-Haas Racing driver Kevin Harvick was the top finisher in a Chevrolet, placing sixth in Sunday's Gander RV 400 at Pocono Raceway. He started from the pole and led a race-high 52 laps, but he had to settle for sixth place after picking up his first victory of the season on the flat track at New Hampshire last weekend. He'll try and get back to Victory Lane at Watkins Glen on the road course next week. In 18 career Cup starts at The Glen, Happy has a win, three top-5 finishes, nine top-10 showings and a 13.28 Average-Finish Position (AFP).--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoBallerSource: NASCAR.com

5 months agoGanassi Racing driver Kyle Larson raced his backup car to a fifth-place finish at the Gander RV 400 at Pocono Raceway on Sunday. Larson smacked the wall during a practice run in Saturday's practice session. It was the second consecutive weekend he was forced into his backup ride. He'll look to roll in his primary ride next Sunday when the circuit heads to tackle the road course at Watkins Glen. In five career Cup starts he has a top-5 finish, two top-10 runs and a 14.8 Average-Finish Position with zero laps led and no DNFs.--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoBallerSource: NASCAR.com

5 months agoHendrick Motorsports driver William Byron ended up finishing fourth in Sunday's Gander RV 400 at Pocono Raceway, and he was the top non-Toyota finisher behind the 1-2-3 group of Denny Hamlin, Erik Jones and Martin Truex Jr. It was an impressive showing for Byron, who was forced to start in the 31st position after his qualifying time was disallowed after a post-qualifying inspection failure. He'll look to keep up the good work at Watkins Glen on the road course next Sunday. Last season he finished eighth in his Cup debut at the New York run.--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoBallerSource: NASCAR.com

5 months agoJoe Gibbs Racing driver Martin Truex Jr. raced to a third-place finish in Sunday's Gander RV 400 at Pocono Raceway. He ended up behind teammates Denny Hamlin (winner) and Erik Jones (second place), giving JGR and Toyota a 1-2-3 finish. Teammate Kyle Busch, who had won the previous two Pocono races, settled for ninth. Truex will be looking for even better results at Watkins Glen next week on the road course. He has a win, five top-5 finishes and eight top-10 showings in 13 career Cup starts at the New York track while registering an 11.3 Average-Finish Position.--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoBallerSource: NASCAR.com

5 months agoJoe Gibbs Racing driver Erik Jones was passed on Lap 144 by teammate Denny Hamlin at the Gander RV 400 at Pocono Raceway on Sunday, and Jones had to settle for second place. He entered with consecutive third-place runs at Kentucky and New Hampshire, so Jones has been right on the brink of winning. Jones scooted up to 13th in the standings, including his cushion to 39 points over Hendrick Motorsports driver Jimmie Johnson, who is in 17th place. Next up is a trip to Watkins Glen, and Jones has finished fifth and 10th in two career Cup starts at the New York road course.--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoBallerSource: NASCAR.com

5 months agoJoe Gibbs Racing driver Joe Gibbs posted a victory at the Gander RV 400 at Pocono Raceway on Sunday, leading a 1-2-3 finish for the JGR racing team. Erik Jones had to settle for second place, while Martin Truex Jr. ended up in third. The victory was the third of the season for the driver of the No. 11 machine, and the 34th of his career. It was nice after he had to settle for a runner-up finish at New Hampshire last week. "You just want to know that you're a race winner," Hamlin said. "You just want to know that you can contend for wins. Yeah, you're looking for momentum, but you're just looking for wins week-in and week-out."--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoBallerSource: NASCAR.com

5 months agoGanassi Racing driver Kyle Larson suffered severe damage during a crash in Turn 2 during practice on Saturday at Pocono Raceway. He clipped the outside wall, spun and smacked into the retaining wall on the inside the track. As a result he will go to a backup car and start from the back of the field in Sunday's Gander RV 400. It's the second consecutive week Larson has had to use a backup car after a practice miscue. Larson was 26th back on June 2 in the first Pocono race, and he has a 13.1 Average-Finish Position in 11 career Cup starts at the Tricky Triangle.--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoBallerSource: NASCAR.com

5 months agoHendrick Motorsports driver Chase Elliott clapped the wall in Turn 1 during practice on Saturday at Pocono Raceway, and he sustained severe backside damage. As a result he will go to a backup car for Sunday's Gander RV 400 at Pocono, starting from the back of the pack. Elliott has been struggling over the past month and a half, and his most impressive recent finish was a fourth-place showing on June 2 in the first stop in Long Pond. Six of his seven career Cup starts at Pocono have resulted in a Top 10 finish, and he has a strong 10.9 Average-Finish Position.--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoBallerSource: NASCAR.com

5 months agoJoe Gibbs Racing driver Erik Jones registered a speed of 173.110 mph in qualifying on Saturday at Pocono Raceway, nailing down the fourth spot in the starting grid for the Gander RV 400.

Dobish - RotoBallerSource: NASCAR.com

5 months agoStewart-Haas Racing driver Aric Almirola posted a best speed of 173.164 mph during qualifying on Saturday at Pocono Raceway, qualifying for the third position in Sunday's Gander RV 400 in Long Pond.

He failed to post a Top 10 in his first 11 Cup starts at Pocono, however, and he has a dismal 24.57 Average-Finish Position in 14 starts overall in Long Pond while totaling just two laps led.--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoBallerSource: NASCAR.com

He was easily the most impressive Penske Ford during practice and qualifying, as teammate Ryan Blaney will start from the 20th position and Brad Keselowski will go off 14th.--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoBallerSource: NASCAR.com

5 months agoStewart-Haas Racing driver Kevin Harvick registered a speed of 174.058 mph during qualifying on Saturday and he claimed the Busch Pole Award heading into Sunday's Gander RV 400 at Pocono Raceway.

His teammate, Aric Almirola, will go off from the third spot, and manufacturer Ford will have the first three cars in Sunday's lineup.

In 35 Cup starts he has a win, nine top-5 finishes and 15 top-10 runs at Pocono Raceway with two pole positions and three DNFs.--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoBallerSource: NASCAR.com
