2014 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 72 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 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: Jimmie Johnson (4 top-fives), Tony Stewart (3 top-fives), Kurt Busch (3 top-fives), Ryan Newman (3 top-fives) and Jeff Gordon (3 top-fives).

Interestingly, though only Jeff Gordon 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 Jimmie Johnson (2013).

The trend over the last five years at Pocono is that the Spring winner comes from the top-five qualifiers, and during the second visit the winner starts sixth or worse - preferably 10th or worse.

So our pick to win today is Jeff Gordon who is tied with Kurt Busch for the most top-fives of the starting top-five qualifiers.

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 other top-five qualifiers - Denny Hamlin, Kurt Busch Brad, Keselowski, and Kevin Harvick.

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