Two months after Martin Truex Jr.’s first win with Furniture Row Racing in Pennsylvania, the team will get a chance to sweep the season at the 2.5-mile track.
NASCAR released the preliminary entry list for the August 8 Windows 10 400 at Pocono Raceway earlier today (July 27). The entry list includes 43 drivers, meaning each team will make Sunday’s race.
Fresh off of his first win of the season in a Skittles-sponsored car, Kyle Busch will return at Pocono with the familiar M&M’s Crispy scheme on his No. 18 Toyota. Busch, 30, has won four of the last five NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races, tying him with Jimmie Johnson for the most victories on the year.
Travis Kvapil will return to the Cup Series, piloting the No. 32 Skuttle Tight Ford for Go Green Racing. Kvapil, a former NASCAR Camping World Truck Series champion, is currently competing full-time in the Truck Series with MAKE Motorsports.
Premium Motorsports has entered both their No. 62 Chevrolet and No. 98 Ford in Sunday’s event. However, the drivers of the two vehicles are currently unknown. Reed Sorenson and Timmy Hill piloted the two machines at Indianapolis.
The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series will return to action at the “Tricky Triangle” on Friday, July 31 for practice and Coors Light Pole Qualifying at 4:45 p.m. ET. The field will return on Saturday for two practice sessions. Coverage for the Windows 10 400 will begin on Sunday at 1:30 p.m. ET, on NBCSN.
