If it was on Saturday Harvick who triumphed 0.7 seconds ahead of Hamlin, Hamlin returned the favor on Sunday. He won by three seconds over Harvick, bringing his fourth win of the season in 2020 under lock and key. At Pocono Raceway, it's Hamlin's sixth win, setting Jeff Gordon's record.

Delayed start and interruption

After the starting grid for Pocono 1 had been drawn in advance, it resulted for Pocono 2 from the race result on Saturday. The top 20 have been reversed. But the driver who finished P20 on Saturday did not start from P1 on Sunday.

Because Ryan Preece (JTG-Chevrolet) had to switch from a replacement to a replacement car due to an engine problem and was relocated to the end of the grid. He wasn't alone with that. No fewer than nine drivers switched to the replacement car for the second race of the weekend. Such was available again for the first time since the NASCAR comeback after the Corona forced break.

One win at Pocono wasn't enough for Denny Hamlin during his rookie season. In this full race replay, relive Hamlin 's 2006 sweep of the 'Tricky Triangle.' --

Joe Gibbs Racing teammates Denny Hamlin and Kyle Busch won the pair of Pocono races last season, which is part of the reason they are two of the favorites for Saturday's race at the NASCAR race odds to win at Pocono . Busch has three career wins at Pocono , including last June's victory.

The command to start the engines was given in the form of a recorded recording by Jimmie Johnson's daughters. But before racing started, there was "of course" another delay. For the fourth time in a row after Homestead, Talladega and Pocono 1, a race in the highest NASCAR league did not start on time. This time, a flash struck around the Pocono Raceway was the reason for a delay of a good 30 minutes. It shouldn't be the last.

stage wins for Kurt Busch and Keselowski

Compared to the Saturday race in the same place, not only was the race distance longer on Sunday (140 instead of 130 laps). The division into the individual racing segments (stages) was also different. Stage 1 went over 30 laps on Sunday and was won by Kurt Busch (Ganassi-Chevrolet) after Austin Dillon (Childress-Chevrolet) inherited the best starting position from Preece but fell back quickly.

The stage 1 victory for Kurt Busch, of course, only came after a further delay of one hour due to rain. Stage 2 was scheduled for 55 laps and was won by Brad Keselowski (Penske-Ford) using a variety of different strategies.

crash by Kyle Busch after incident with Ryan Blaney

Meanwhile Ryan Blaney (Penske-Ford) and Kyle Busch (Gibbs-Toyota) caused an incident. Ten laps from the end of stage 2, the two clashed when lapping Garrett Smithley (Ware-Chevrolet) in the "Tunnel Turn" (turn 2). Busch took off and was outside.

"I know what happened. But there is no point in talking about it because it would come across wrong," said Kyle Busch's first comment. While the NASCAR champion was out of the race in 2015 and 2019, Blaney finished 22nd, one lap behind.

Harvick vs. Again Hamlin - this time the other way round

The race win was determined by Kevin Harvick and Denny Hamlin among themselves. But this time the signs were reversed. Hamlin delayed his last pit stop longer. And because he got two fresh tires while doing so, he came back on the track in front of Harvick.

Saturday winner Harvick had stopped 15 laps before Hamlin, but got four fresh tires. However, because he was a little delayed in the heavy traffic and his tires were older than Hamlin's, it was nothing for him with a second win in two days.

The top 10 were completed by Matt DiBenedetto (Wood-Ford), William Byron (Hendrick-Chevrole), Clint Bowyer (Stewart / Haas-Ford), Alex Bowman (Hendrick-Chevrolet) and Martin Truex Jr. (Gibbs-Toyota). Stewart / Haas and Gibbs have each brought three of their four pilots into the top 10.

Jimmie Johnson, whose daughters were responsible for the starting command, had missed the top 10 in Stage 1 and Stage 2, respectively. There was a drive-through penalty in the last racing segment. The reason was a wheel rolled off at the last pit stop. In the end, it was no more than 16th place for the seven-time NASCAR champion.
