NASCAR set for Truck, Xfinity, Cup tripleheader Sunday
LONG POND, Pa. (AP) — NASCAR is set for a tripleheader of racing at Pocono Raceway from three national series on Sunday. NASCAR says it's the first time three NASCAR National Series races will be raced on the same day at the same track. It will be the fifth time three NASCAR National Series races will be run on the same day but those were at different tracks. Rain washed out the Truck Series race on Saturday in what was already a packed schedule. Pocono is the site of a Cup Series twin bill, with one race on Saturday, one on Sunday, and the second race comes with a twist. The field for Sunday’s race will be set by inverting the lead-lap finishers from race No. 1.
This year's Pocono doubleheader preserves the track's two dates on thebut squeezes them into one weekend. The starting lineup for Saturday's race was determined by the same protocol that has set the field for other races this year without qualifying, and Sunday's lineup will be set by a top-20 inversion of Saturday's race results.
The Joe Gibbs Racing teammates who won the pair of Pocono races last year, Kyle Busch and Denny Hamlin, areSaturday's race at the Tricky Triangle. If Hamlin wins this weekend, he can tie or surpass NASCAR Hall of Famer Jeff Gordon for the most Cup wins at Pocono with six.
