2013 Pocono: Chevrolet NASCAR Sprint Cup Race Recap

Five-time NASCAR Sprint Cup champion Jimmie Johnson, No. 48 Lowe’s/Kobalt Tools Chevrolet SS, scored his third win of the season and third win at Pocono Raceway in dominating fashion today. Johnson closed the deal by leading 128 of the 160 laps in the race, and was untouchable while cruising to his 63rd career NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) victory. He extended his overall lead in the series to 51 points over second place with his ninth top-10 finish of the season.

Johnson’s Hendrick Motorsports teammate, Dale Earnhardt Jr., in the No. 88 National Guard Chevrolet SS, finished third in today’s event and moved up two spots in the standings to fourth. This was Earnhardt’s fourth top-five finish of the season and his 10th career top-10 finish at Pocono.
