Dale Earnhardt Jr. won Sunday’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Pocono Raceway.
The driver of the No. 88 National Guard Chevrolet finished ahead of Brad Keselowski in the 160 lap race at the 2.5-mile triangular track located in Long Pond, PA.
The Pocono 400 began with Denny Hamlin on the pole but Brad Keselowski charged to the front on lap one. Tony Stewart moved to the front of the field by midway but a variety of pit strategies would come in to play. On lap 135 Keselowski would move into sixth knowing everyone in front of him would need to pit.
While leading Keselowski would get debris on his car with six laps to go, he would let Dale Earnahrdt Jr. go around him to try and get the debris off.
The win is the second of the season for Earnhardt Jr. and his 21st career NASCAR Sprint Cup Series win.
