Cup: Pocono - Race results

Pole sitter Joey Logano went on to win the Pocono 400 presented by #NASCAR race to claim his second victory in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship.
Joey Logano found his way to victory lane for only the second time in 125 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, winning the Pocono 400 presented by #NASCAR Sunday afternoon race after having started from pole position.

As the youngest driver to win at Pocono (22 years, 17 days old) it was fitting that one of the oldest active drivers in Cup competition, Mark Martin, should be the nearest challenger. The veteran driver was just 0.997s behind Logano as he claimed the chequered flag.

The race lasted just over three hours and saw 7 cautions lasting a total of 35 laps of the 160-lap race. Matt Kenseth now leads by the Cup championship standings by 10pts over Dale Earnhardt Jr. with former points leader Greg Biffle dropping back to third place in the standings after race 14 of 36.
