NASCAR at Pocono Results, Ranking: Kyle Busch wins Gander Outdoors 400 in extra time



LONG POND, Pa – Kyle Busch won his sixth race of the season on Sunday at the Pocono Raceway in overtime. Busch started from behind after a failed post-qualifying test before hiring Kevin Harvick to lead the NASCAR Cup Series.

The trip to Victory Lane is the second of Busch's Cup career at Pocono. Busch won this race last season before finishing second in the Championship 4. Sunday's campaign ended Busch's weekend on the track as he also won the checkered flag in the Truck Series on Saturday.

Busch's victory marks the 49th of his career in the Cup series, connecting him to retired driver, who became team owner Tony Stewart, in 1

3th place on the all-time list. Next up for Rowdy are NASCAR's Hall of Famers Junior Johnson and Ned Jarrett, who each have 50 career wins at the cup level.

Chase Elliott started sixth in the race and continued to race for the first leg after giving Denny Hamlin a lead of less than 15 minutes. Victory in the middle of the race is Elliotts second place this season, the first in the second leg of the race in New Hampshire. Hamlin finished the second leg, followed by Kevin Harvick, Kyle Busch and pole star Daniel Suarez.

Harvick took control in Stage 2, earning his tenth green and white checkered flag of the season. Elliott would finish the second leg ahead of Clint Bowyer, Alex Bowman and Kyle Larson.

    Stage 1: Elliott shines again later on the stage

    Daniel Suarez began at the Pole after the original Pole Sitter Kevin Harvick did not allow his qualifying time because of a failed inspection. Harvick, along with Kyle Busch, who also had to start from the back, won more than 10 positions in the first round when they started their attack through the field.

    Harvick had no problem making his way to the front, breaking into the top 10 in less than 10 laps. It took a little less than 20 laps of bush to pass Alex Bowman for his place in the top 10.

    The No. 4 car got green flag pit stop on lap 20. Two laps later, Suarez and second place driver Denny Hamlin came out of the lead. Jamie McMurray and Matt Kenseth were the only penalties, both had to pass a pass for the acceleration at the entrance. Kurt Busch was the strategist in the strategy, but finally came in the 33rd round to the pits.

    When the number 41 finally went into the pit lane, Hamlin was recycled as a leader before Suarez. Chase Elliott would then go to number 19 for the second position when the stage reached its final 15 laps. Harvick also came in the top five after the pit stops.

    Elliott Hamlin had to take the lead with 11 laps to go. Once Elliott took first place, he did not leave Hamlin on stage. Driver # 9 would win his second leg of the season. In a strategy game, it was also important that Martin Truex Jr. and Erik Jones paused before the end of the stage so they would not have to plummet between stages.

    First Stage Results:

    1. Chase Elliott (10 points plus 1)
    2. Kevin Harvick (9 points)
    3. Denny Hamlin (8 points)
    4. Kyle Busch (7 points)
    5. Daniel Suarez (6 points)
    6. Clint Bowyer (5 points) [19659008] Brad Keselowski (4 points)
    7. Kurt Busch (3 points)
    8. Alex Bowman (2 points)
    9. Ryan Blaney (1 points)

    Level 2 Results: Harvick dominates … again [19659189] Erik Jones led the field green after remaining between stages and was immediately assigned to fend off Elliott and Harvick. The number 4 was finally second of Elliott's 11 rounds on the scene with his look at last year's rookie of the year.

    Fourteen laps on the stage and 64 laps in the race, Harvick completed his recovery and took over the lead from Jones. After reaching first place, Harvick began to do what we were used to observing: to break away from everyone else.

    As Harvick pointed out, Kurt Busch came to a strategy call for four tires after having only two between stages. However, it was Hamlin who brought the green flag to the stage in 23 laps. It was the perfect timing for Truex, who felt something drop off his car and make quick repairs. Harvick came off the lead a few laps later.

    The afternoon's first natural caution came courtesy of Corey LaJoie, who hit the wall hard in Turn 3. This was a break for six riders: Suarez, McMurray, Blaney, Kasey Kahne, Menard and Brad Keselowski, who still had to drive under Green Flag conditions and had the opportunity to come down during the yellow phase. Kurt Busch had to drive down the pit road twice after reporting loose lugnuts.

    Harvick and Elliott turned the field green when they restarted, but it was Kyle Busch who climbed into the leaderboard and moved up into position 2 when number 4 made the first round. Harvick then began to do his thing and built the guide with bush in his rearview mirror. It was so long and goodbye for Harvick after that point, driving to easily take the stage.

    Jones, Truex, Hamlin, Almirola and Suarez Pit closed in front of the Pit Road know Harvick would win the stage so that they would be capable of 1965199] Stage 2 Results:

    1. Kevin Harvick (10 points, plus 1 playoff -point)
    2. Chase Elliott (9 points)
    3. Clint Bowyer (8 points) [19659008] Alex Bowman (7 points)
    4. Kyle Larson (6 points)

    8. William Byron (1 point)

    Last leg: Kyle Busch succeeds

    William Byron decided not to pitch between stages and started from the lead in front of the entire Joe Gibbs Racing formation with frontman Kyle Busch. While Byron could hold number 18 for a few laps, Busch eventually moved into first place with less than 50.

    During the final stage, Keselowski was hustled by Larson and worried that he might be able to cut a tire. Unfortunately for Team # 2, Keselowski's worries became true and his car hit the wall hard in less than 40 minutes. Damage was irreparable and Keselowski had to bring his car to the garage.

    It was a tough sequence for Stewart-Haas Racing when Harvick and Almirola made contact on the way from the pit lane. Both had to come home for repairs, while Bowyer was punished for speeding. There was fluid on the line at the restart, which caused NASCAR to throw caution to the cleanup.

    Kyle Busch started from the lead again with Suarez and Elliott behind him. Joey Logano slowed down in the second corner but was able to pit his car into the pits for repair.

    Just when it looked like Busch would win the race unchallenged, Bubba Wallace hit the wall at seven and brought caution to the fore. NASCAR had to display the red flag for the cleanup after Wallace had found his way to the Infield Care Center.

    Again it was Busch who started again in front of the field, but before he could take the white flag as leader Almirola turned to bring out yet another warning. This brought the race into NASCAR overtime.

    However, Busch would not be denied in overtime, overcoming a restless restart to take the checkered flag over his teammate Suarez.
