Sunoco Red Cross Pennsylvania 500 - Pocono Raceway

Edwards Makes Right Call to Win at Pocono
During a rain delay that stopped the Sunoco Red Cross Pennsylvania 500 for 41 minutes, driver Carl Edwards and crew chief Bob Osborne argued loudly about who made the call to come to the pits after an afternoon thunderstorm began to soak Pocono International Raceway. In retrospect, both should be willing to take the credit, because the strategy earned Edwards his fourth NASCAR Sprint Cup Series victory of the year and the 11th of his career. Tony Stewart came home second, 3.858 seconds back. Polesitter Jimmie Johnson was third, coasting across the finish line at the 2.5-mile triangular track after running out of fuel in the final corner. Kevin Harvick rallied from a first-lap spin to finish fourth. David Ragan was fifth, followed by Clint Bowyer, Kasey Kahne, Mark Martin, Jamie McMurray and Jeff Gordon. Edwards’ chances of winning hinged on the race resuming after the rain delay, which came on lap 131. Edwards, Johnson and Stewart were among those who had come to the pits on Lap 128, while 19 other cars remained on the track.

Brickyard Winner Jimmie Johnson Takes Second Straight Pole
If the front row for Sunday's race at Pocono looks familiar, it should. The top two qualifiers are the same as last week at Indianapolis. Jimmie Johnson won the Coors Light Pole Award for the Sunoco Red Cross Pennsylvania 500 with a lap of 53.503 seconds, at an average speed of 168.215 mph. This is his 16th pole in 240 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races and his third pole in 2008. This is his second pole in 14 races at Pocono Raceway. Mark Martin qualified on the outside pole for the second consecutive week, posting his ninth top-10 start of 2008 and his 30th in 44 races at Pocono Raceway. David Gilliland turned in a third-place qualifying effort, earning his first top-10 start at Pocono Raceway. It is his first top-ten start in 21 races this season. Sam Hornish Jr. (26th) was the fastest qualifying rookie.
