NASCAR Sprint Cup: GoBowling.com 400 at Pocono – Race Results

Dale Earnhardt Jr. realized that it took a bit of luck for him to win at Pocono Raceway in June. But he knew his team was firing on all cylinders Sunday when he completed the season sweep.

Benefitting from impeccable pit strategy, Earnhardt led the final 14 laps and a car with the performance to hold off Kevin Harvick on a restart with three laps to go to ring up his third victory of the 2014 season in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series GoBowling.com 400.

The result was Earnhardt’s second season sweep of his career (Talladega 2002). He also became the first driver to sweep at Pocono since Denny Hamlin in 2006.

It was the fifth consecutive Sprint Cup victory at Pocono for Hendrick Motorsports, which also hadJeff Gordon in contention for much of the race.

Gordon, a six-time winner at Pocono, led a race-high 63 laps. He also became the first driver to lead 1,000 laps at Pocono and passed the 24,000 mark in career laps led in Sprint Cup competition.

Joey Logano, who led the first 30 laps, finished third ahead of Clint Bowyer and Greg Biffle.
