  • Jamie McMurray had an up-and-down day at Pocono, after qualifying 10th, was moved to the fifth starting position once many cars were penalized for post-qualifying inspection.
  • McMurray and teammate Kyle Larson were both involved in a wreck, along with the No. 34 car, that brought out the final caution of the race.
  • The race ended in NASCAR overtime.
  • The caution flag was shown seven times for a total of 29 laps, and was red-flagged once; and the lead changed 13 times among 10 drivers.

McMurray quotes:

Not the finish we were hoping for today for the No. 1 Arctic Cat Chevrolet. The car was loose most of the race but I thought we were going to end up ok there at the end. With a few late race cautions the field got bunched back up; I am not really sure what happened on the last caution, but we had some on-track contact that forced us to pit again. We will regroup this week and look on to Watkins Glen.”

MENCS teams will head to Watkins Glen International next week for the GoBowling at the Glen on Sunday, Aug 5. NBC, MRN affiliates and Sirius XM NASCAR Channel 90 will have live coverage beginning at 2:30 p.m. ET.
