NASCAR at Pocono live race updates, results, highlights for Sunday's Explore the Pocono Mountains 350

If the second of two races at Pocono Raceway is half as thrilling as the first, then NASCAR fans everywhere will be thrilled.

Saturday’s race featured a tight competition late between Hendrick Motorsport teammates Kyle Larson and Alex Bowman, with the former finally overtaking the lead with just four laps remaining. For a time, it seemed the “Tricky Triangle” would be the site of Larson’s fourth straight NASCAR Cup Series victory — until a blown tire sent him skidding into the wall and allowed Bowman to snatch victory from his teammate. Larson ended up finishing ninth in Saturday’s race.

Said Bowman after the race: “I hate to win that way, but hell, yeah, I’ll take it.”

The ordering of the finish isn’t inconsequential for Sunday’s Explore the Pocono Mountains 350, either: The top 20 finishers in Saturday’s Pocono Organics CBD 325 had their final positions inverted, meaning Chris Buescher — who finished 20th on Saturday — will take the pole. Though Larson technically is slated for 12th in Sunday’s lineup, he will be moved to the rear as a result of driving a backup car.
