Pocono Recap: Denny Hamlin finished fourth in Sunday’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Pocono (Pa.) Raceway, logging his second-straight top-five finish in the #11 FedEx Ground Toyota. Hamlin and crew chief Darian Grubb played the strategy game to near-perfection in the 160-lap event won by Dale Earnhardt Jr. on the 2.5-mile triangular track. Hamlin, a four-time Pocono winner, lined up fifth for the final restart with 12 laps remaining, moved up to fourth in Turn 1 and took the checkered flag fourth behind Earnhardt Jr., Brad Keselowski and Kurt Busch. Hamlin qualified on the pole with a track record speed and ran among the leaders throughout the event. An untimely caution after many leaders had already made green flag stops shuffled the #11 machine back to 13th for a midrace restart, but Hamlin quickly worked his way back to the front after a series of yellow flag periods and varying strategies on pit road. The finish marked Hamlin’s fourth top-five result of the 2014 season, and second-straight following a fifth-place run at Dover. Hamlin moved up one spot to eighth in the NASCAR standings following Pocono, 78 points behind leader Jeff Gordon after 14 of 26 regular season races.

Michigan Preview: The Series heads to the Irish Hills of Michigan for Sunday’s 400-mile event at Michigan International Speedway. Hamlin is a two-time Cup Series winner at the wide, two-mile track, winning back-to-back June races at Michigan in 2010 and 2011. In 2010, Hamlin led a race-high 123 laps en route to Victory Lane. The following year, a late-race two-tire pit call put Hamlin on the front row for the final restart, where Hamlin took the lead and held off now-teammate Matt Kenseth for the win. Hamlin started eighth, led nine laps and finished 20th in the most-recent trip to Michigan last August.
