The NASCAR Xfinity Series will mark its third race at Pocono Raceway with what is anticipated to be an exciting technical package on its cars. The series will use the same aero package that was so successful at Indianapolis Motor Speedway last year setting records for green flag passes for the lead (29) and lead changes (16).
The cars will have a bigger splitter and spoiler, specially designed aero ducts and restrictor plates on the 2.5-mile three-turn historic track and the expected outcome is even closer racing and more passing.
Neither of the race’s first two winners – Kyle Larson (2016) and Brad Keselowski (2017) will be competing this week’s Pocono Green “250” Recycled by JP Mascaro & Sons (Saturday at 1 p.m. ET on FS1, MRN and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio) ensuring a new winner with the car’s new package.
Veteran Elliott Sadler maintains the championship lead that he’s held most of the year but is looking for his first win at Pocono in the Xfinity Series. He does have a history at the track, however, as the inaugural Camping World Truck Series race winner at Pocono in 2010.
TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
