Matt Kenseth won at wild one at Pocono.With 3 laps to go, race leader Joey Logano, then Kyle Busch — who was attempting to win his fourth win in a row — ran out of fuel. This was Kenseth’s second Sprint Cup win this year.
Logano ended up 20th and Busch 21st.
Busch barely crossed the finish line and failed to get into the top 30 in points. He is currently 32nd. He had won three straight Cup races and four of five coming into Pocono. He swept the Xfinity and Cup races at Indianapolis and won the Camping World Truck Series race this past Saturday at Pocono.
The top-five ended up being Brad Keselowski, Jeff Gordon, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Greg Biffle. This was Biffle’s second top-five of the season. As for Earnhardt, he has a fast car all race when he was in open air, but he got a speeding penalty during a green-flag pit stop in the first half of the race, then spun out after contact with Cole Whitt just before the halfway point. Last years defending race winner goes win-less at Pocono one year after sweeping both Pocono races.
Kenseth breaks the streak of Kyle Busch who was looking to become the first driver since Jimmie Johnson in 2007 to win four straight.
“I never thought I’d ever win at Pocono, and I never thought I’d win a fuel-mile race,” Kenseth said after the win.
