"Just thankful for the opportunity to have the two-day shows", Busch said.

It was. She was in tears over the final laps and celebrated in victory lane a win that her husband dedicated to his late grandmother.

The Monster Energy Cup Series heads to Pocono Raceway Sunday for the Overton's 400.

It is also Busch's first career NASCAR Cup win at Pocono, leaving Charlotte Motor Speedway as the only track at which he has not won at points-paying race. I also mentioned it comes down to what team makes the right adjustments throughout the race to have a balanced vehicle that can handle all three corners here at the Tricky Triangle.

TEAMMATE CHECKMATE: Hendrick Motorsports' Kasey Kahne - who ended a 102-race winless streak last week in the Brickyard 400 - turned teammate Johnson, wrecking him out of the race on Lap 57. Normally, it's a three-day weekend where cars begin practice on Friday and continue practice and qualifying Saturday for the Sunday race.

Jarrett thinks two drivers stand out as the favorites on Sunday. We all know how important qualifying is to determine the top plays. "Those guys have found a bunch and it doesn't look like NASCAR is going to take whatever it is away".

As it happens, Harvick has now finished in second place in four of his last seven trips to the Tricky Triangle.

But as time went on, the president became annoyed with the negative coverage because it "took over everything", the official said. Trump's tweets serve as a near constant reminder of those who have tried to bridle the president in the past - and failed.

As the playoffs get closer, about the only way for Dale Earnhardt Jr to participate in the run to the championship is to get a win in the next six races.

Who is Logano's top competition for transfer spot in the Playoffs? The 39-year-old driver has no wins at the five remaining tracks, however, he finished fifth at MI in June and sixth at Richmond in April. This could be another event where a top driver like Busch dominates, or it could turn into a insane crash-fest like last week's race at Indianapolis. Denny Hamlin leads all active drivers with four wins here with Jimmie Johnson(3) and Kurt Busch(3) right in his rearview mirror. He led 30 of the first 50 laps. Johnson, last year's Series Champion, took his auto to the garage and out of the race. "We should've had a better finish today but the pit-road speeding penalty cost us".

This will be the second race at Pocono in the past eight races, making the race results from June a good place to start building your fantasy racing team.

Blaney has an average finish of 7.3 through his three career starts there and no longer flies under the radar due to the success he has seen this season. Harvick has one more Top 10 but McMurray has one more Top 20. Busch was third in the running order after his pit stop, and with 10-lap newer tires than the top two (Hamlin and Harvick), he took the lead with 15 laps to go.

If there are no more new winners in the next five races, with the No. 22 Team Penske auto mired at 13th in the standings, Logano would not transfer into the playoffs for the first time since he joined the organization in 2013.

Matt Kenseth is 16th and holds the final transfer spot, 17 points ahead of Clint Bowyer. I will say that I'm not really that anxious about it. I will stay on the #18 bandwagon until Homestead.

"To be honest with you, I believed in myself enough to do it", Preece said of using his Xfinity budget for just two races. So Kyle Busch has the first pick of pit stall because of his pole at Indy.

(INDYCAR)-Josef Newgarden has bolted into the lead for the IndyCar champions with a victory in the 200-mile race on the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course that follows his win in Toronto in the previous IndyCar race-at Toronto. "Seeing him (Martin) go through that and finally, 10 years later, getting what he needed to go out and be a contender for a championship, it motivates me and keeps me comfortable in knowing that I've got time". "We get to go to MI after that, which we've won twice, been a really strong track for us". I also have available my Race by Race Trends sheet you can view as well.
