2013 Pocono: NASCAR Sprint Cup Starting Line-up & Race Preview


By Mike Sulka

Since 1974, the NASCAR Sprint Cup series has been racing at Pocono Raceway in Long Pond, Pennsylvania. In all, the Cup series has raced here 66 times. Bill Elliott and Jeff Gordon have the most all-time victories at the track with five, while Denny Hamlin trails by just one with four. Richard Petty won the first event at the 2.5-mile tri-oval in his '74 Dodge.

Pocono Raceway was track was built in 1968. It has 14 degree banking in Turn One, 8 degree banking in Turn Two, and 6 degree banking in Turn 3. The straights are flat at two degree banking and very long. The frontstretch is 3740 feet with a backstretch of 3055 feet. The shortstetch is still 1780 feet. The pavement is brand new when it was re-done in 2011. In all, the track seats nearly 77,000.

Over the last three years, there are five drivers who have performed better than any other at Pocono: Tony Stewart (4 top-fives), Jimmie Johnson (4 top-fives), Denny Hamlin (3 top-fives), Kevin Harvick (3 top-fives) and Kyle Busch (3 top-fives).

Interestingly, though none of these drivers has two wins during that stretch despite their consistent runs in the top-five. The only with three or more top-fives and a win is Denny Hamlin (2010).

The latest trend at Pocono is that Jeff Gordon has won twice (Spring 2011, Fall 2012) over that stretch, otherwise he finished sixth or worse.

The previously predictable Pocono has turned unpredictable, so our pick to win today is Tony Stewart.

But we wouldn't put money on this one for the win, only a top-five finish.

When that pick fails us, keep an eye on the Chevrolet of Jimmie Johnson. He's leading the points for a reason.

Enjoy the race! It is sure to be another NASCAR Sprint Cup thriller!
