Rain played a major factor in today’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Pennsylvania 400 at Pocono Raceway with heavy downpours delaying the start and then another round of storms bringing the day to early conclusion.
Through the opening laps it appeared it might be a great day for Joe Gibbs Racing with all three cars showing speed early on, but unfortunately the good fortune would not last and when NASCAR called the race after just 98 of the scheduled 160 laps it would be Joey Logano leading the team with a 13th-place finish, while an accident just before the last round of rain left Denny Hamlin back in 29th and an early part failure resulted in a 33rd-place finish for Kyle Busch.

All three Joe Gibbs Racing entries would spend the first half of the race using caution on the track in an effort to avoid any potential early accidents while running in the familiar pack style of racing at the 2.5-mile superspeedway. Fortunately for everyone, there were no major accidents and the first caution of the night wouldn’t come out until midway through the 160-lap race. Read more
Denny Hamlin led Joe Gibbs Racing with a third-place run in tonight’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Quaker State 400 from Kentucky Speedway, while teammates Kyle Busch and Joey Logano finished 10th and 22nd respectively.
Hamlin started his No. 11 FedEx Express Toyota third and raced inside the top five through the first half of the race as the team worked to free him up from tight handling conditions. A tremendous pit stop by the FedEx crew put Hamlin in second for a restart on lap 130 and he was able to just get past his teammate Busch to gain the lead for the first time on the night. Hamlin would go on to lead the next 56 laps. Hamlin would race among the leaders the rest of the way, but was forced to conserve fuel on the final run which limited his ability to catch leader Brad Keselowski. He would go on to finish with a strong third-place effort. Read more
