NASCAR Visiting Pocono For Second Time This Season

Last updated on Friday, August 3, 2012

(Long Pond, PA) The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series returns to Pocono Raceway for Sunday’s Pennsylvania 400.

Activity gets underway this afternoon with a pair of practice sessions. Qualifying is scheduled for Saturday morning.

Joey Logano won the pole and the race when NASCAR came to the two and-a-half-mile triangular track in June and was the pole winner for last August's race, which was won by Brad Keselowski.

Dale Earnhardt Junior enters the weekend as the points leader, holding a 14-point edge on Matt Kenseth.

Jimmie Johnson is currently fourth in points after winning last Sunday's Brickyard 400 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
