2014 Pocono II: 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 73 times. Jeff Gordon has the most all-time victories at the track with six, while Denny Hamlin trails by just two with four. Richard Petty won the first event at the 2.5-mile tri-oval in his '74 Dodge.

Pocono Raceway - aka the 'Tricky Triangle' - broke ground in 1969, and opened in 1971 as Pocono International Raceway. 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 quite new since it was re-done in 2011. In all, the track seats nearly 77,000.

Over the last two and a half years, there are two drivers who have performed better than any other at Pocono: Tony Stewart (3 top-fives), Dale Earnhardt Jr. (3 top-fives).

Despite the consistent runs in the top-five, only Dale Earnhardt Jr. has won during that span (Spring, 2014).

The latest trend at Pocono is that we've had six different winners over the last six races.

The only multi-time winners since 2006 are Jeff Gordon - twice (Spring 2011, Fall 2012) - and Denny Hamlin (Summer 2009, and Spring 2010).

The previously predictable Pocono has turned unpredictable. Yet, our pick to win today is Brad Keselowski since he already has three wins, and is the best qualifier with the best race results.

Should that pick fail us, keep an eye on the Chevrolet of Jeff Gordon to win or finish worse than sixth or Tony Stewart to finally turn a top-five car into a winner.

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