Denny Hamlin secures Gander RV 400 win — NASCAR at Pocono

"It was a good day. A couple close weeks here now but we definitely got the speed to do it so we gotta close it out".

Kyle Busch has swept race weekends across all NASCAR series, so perhaps the idea of driving four times in next year's packed Pocono slate would hold some appeal for the sport's winningest driver. The three-time victor at Pocono could use a strong finish this week to get back into playoff position, but he's a 50-1 longshot in the latest 2019 Gander RV 400 odds. That's the way it shook out after three extra laps. "We didn't really have a lot going our way". It was just a struggle from what we had in practice.

"We just found a way to kind of make it work". Hamlin has been kind to us lately, so he's bought himself another week on the card. We ran out of fuel coming across the (finish) line, so that was great.

Seven-time champion Jimmie Johnson still hasn't won a race since June 4, 2017, at Dover, but he did win the second stage Sunday. But his run Sunday was considerably more satisfying than the day he had last weekend at New Hampshire.

Chase Elliott suffered damage to the right rear of his No. 9 Chevrolet during practice on Saturday morning and had to switch to his backup vehicle for qualifying. He was 29th fastest in time trials but, under NASCAR rules, had to drop to the back of the field for the start.

Kyle Busch won the first stage.

Hamlin had enough fuel to pull away off the final restart in an overtime finish. Larson had a close call with the wall in overtime and lost a position when he slowed to avoid contact with the barrier.

"I'm so dang excited", Chastain said.

"I've just got to stop being stupid". I felt bad, but it was better than ending up torn up like the last time I was aggressive on a restart. "I mean, there's not a week that shows up I don't think we can win". "I feel good about Watkins Glen, Michigan - all these places we've run good at".

"I told them I can't save two laps; but then you start to save, and we all know how to do it, it's just a matter of - it's frustrating as a driver", said Jones. But certainly I think we're versed in the sense we can win anywhere. The track also displayed a memorial with Harrison's name and No. 11 (for his Xfinity car) painted on a rock.

"The in-a-rows and the dominance at certain race tracks is obviously cool, too", Busch said. Harvick, the 2007 Daytona 500 victor and 2014 Cup champion, has won at every active track except Pocono and Kentucky. He spent the rest of the event working his way back up, ultimately finishing ninth.

The decision by the No. 20 team to save as much fuel as possible while Jones led, which resulted in him losing the lead to Hamlin with 17 laps to go in the scheduled distance.

"It's always good to start next to Will because you know you're going to start up front", Rossi said.

The way Harvick saw it, a pair of cautions in the last 10 laps deprived him of the chance to win in a auto that was set up for long runs. I didn't just go out there and block from the lead. "You have to have the cautions fall your way, and you have to have everything go right".
