This weeks race is under the threat of rain, but who cares? Lets talk Pocono!!!

They say that the Brickyard 400 at Indy and Pocono run as similar race tracks. That means that the Joe Gibbs Toyotas should do well once agian. The #11 of Denny Hamlin is at the top of that list because he is not only solid at this race, but also due to catch some of the breaks that have alluded this team for a good part of this year.

That being said I think we will see the defending race winner Martin Truex Jr. to bring home the win in the #78 Furniture Row Toyota. He has a long history of doing well here has run strong in recent weeks.

There are only 6 races left before the playoffs start on September 18th and Kyle Larson was last weeks big points winner, jumping 4 spots and moving into the 16th and final spot. Several cars are close behind him including Casey Kane who is only 10 points behind.
