LONG POND, Pa. –During two days of testing Wednesday and Thursday at Pocono, the quickest drivers posted lap speeds of nearly 180 mph. Mark Martin’s best lap (50.142 seconds) was more than two seconds faster Â than the track qualifying record set by Kasey Kahne in 2004 (52.164 seconds).
So, given the increase in speed, what will it take to win the pole for Sunday’s Pocono 400 presented by #NASCAR? Clint Bowyer didn’t have a specific number, but he had a definite idea.
“I don’t know — something the size of grapefruits, I’d say,” Bowyer said.
