Matt Kenseth scored the 33rd win of his career and his second of the year Sunday. Kenseth inherited the lead on the final lap when leader Kyle Busch ran out fuel. Busch took the lead a lap earlier when Joey Logano also ran out of fuel. Kenseth had enough fuel to go the distance and scored his 33rd career win and his first at Pocono. Here’s how it all went down in a wild NASCAR Sprint Cup Windows 10 400 at Pocono Raceway.
In his first pole position of the year, Kyle Busch led the field to the green. Busch was able to move ahead by turn 2 as Harvick slipped into second. Logan, Dillon and Kurt Busch fought for third. By lap 2 Logano had sole possession of third, Dillon fourth, Stewart fifth. Kurt Busch moved into fourth on lap 4.
On lap 5 Kasey Kahne lost it exiting turn three by himself and slid into the inside wall on the start of pit road bringing out the first caution. With heavy damage on his right front, Kahne was uninjured and unable to continue. No one was injured in the accident, but the wall did sustain some damage. The red flag came out as track workers repaired the wall. After a red flag of 14 minutes 43 seconds, the wall was repaired and the yellow was shown.
