Kyle Busch dominates again to win at Pocono

"I didn't think I sped", he said.

Driving the No. 18 MALTESERS Toyota for Joe Gibbs Racing (JGR), Busch will make his fifth of seven starts in XFINITY series competition in 2018. There is a lot going on. Everything is bound to go his way sometime and it could well be Sunday.

The 37-year-old New Jersey native scored another win Sunday at Pocono Raceway, one of his handful of home tracks.

"We had a good auto all day", said Harvick, whose five wins this year are a series high. They have a lot of catching up to do. Kenseth and crew chief Matt Puccia parlayed the return to the lead lap into a respectable finish - Kenseth's best since returning to the team - but the outfit has miles to go before it will become competitive with the elite of the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series.

"I think three of those guys are head-over-heels better than the rest of us", Kyle Larson said. Terry Labonte was the only early-season victor who won just once in the first 15 races.

Jim: It's an excellent idea for two reasons.

Not even a pit-road speeding penalty could slow down Busch, as he won his first Xfinity race of the season and 92nd of his career. NASCAR does not need to sit on a potential significant improvement to its racing product until next year. Extra practice time at tracks just does not adequately represent race conditions.

Kenny: I'm against using points-paying races as nothing more than a glorified test session.

NASCAR plans to use the package again for the Xfinity cars next week at MI and at Indianapolis in September. I'm also not fond of changing rules during the season - bigger, better financed teams can adapt while such moves just push those on the other end of the spectrum further behind.

"Once we fired off and I'd seen the lap times and I knew what my vehicle felt like, I initially was like, 'Oh we're good".

Kate Spade's husband says she suffered from depression
Kate also told People that the key to their personal and business success together was their opposite approach to things. Kate Spade , 55, was found dead by a housekeeper at the couple's Park Avenue residence late Tuesday morning.

"I did it earlier in the race around some cars and had no trouble with it".

"It's been one I wanted to get", he said. Fast facts: The win made Busch the only active driver with a win at every current race track in the series.

The series will shift to MI where Larson is the defending race victor.

Kevin Harvick, who leads the series with five wins, joins Blaney on the front row.

"The Chevrolets are kind of struggling as a whole", he said. And given those three finished in the top four on Sunday at Pocono, their dominance doesn't show many signs of weakening anytime soon.

He's coming off his most recent XFINITY Series win at Pocono (Pa.) Raceway last weekend, where he led a race-high 64 laps in upping his all-time series win mark to 92. It was a matter of who could get out front.

Truex went on to win the stage while Logano came into the pits with less than two to go after running out of fuel. Logano, though, has been up from most often this season, so he'll have more opportunities and likely beat the other two back to the winner's circle. "You're always a little bit nervous just hoping you do everything right and hoping two guys don't get that bumper-to-bumper kind of tandem thing going and get a run on you".

Blaney's fourth career pole puts him in position to repeat and earn an automatic spot in NASCAR's playoffs.

Tim: I think Joey Logano will be the next multi-race victor in 2018.

Kevin Harvick and Kyle Busch have combined to win nine of 13 races this season.
