All weekend long, the driver of the No. 78 Furniture Row Racing Toyota maintained a steady confidence that his team was "right there" despite not having the treasure trove of playoff points he had built up a year ago.
Pocono Raceway is a unique track on the NASCAR circuit.
"It just kind of reminded us of how big a deal it is to win a championship in this sport", Truex said. "It's always fun to win, especially when you beat the best guys out there". These two guys (Busch and Harvick) were so fast today. I am not sure what happened there, but overall, I was really happy with how the vehicle was driving. He's starting second, so if he can get out in front early, it might be a long day for everyone else.
Harvick led 89 laps and Busch led 13. "It seems as though those voices have gotten louder over the last few years". "I never saw any of our top indicating lights that would have said we were speeding".

During this time, she was even getting work as an actress, so her feelings were incredibly powerful as well as persuasive. So it was a big "wake-up moment" when she arrived in Hollywood, which is infamous for its boisterous boys' clubs.
"When only four of us stayed out, it was a little bit more of a concern at that point", Pearn said.
"We had a fast auto at Indy a year ago and, with Goodyear bringing the Indy tire to Pocono this time, we are setting our vehicle up very similar to that".
"I feel like my vehicle today was kind of as good as it's been all year", he said. At Pocono fantasy owners saw Harvick have a race-winning auto, lead the most laps and win the second stage but then end up outside of victory lane because of strategic decisions and a high class of racers up front.

She also told EXTRA that she did react with "screams", adding, "This time I wasn't so calm". Did I fight about it? Nori, if you ever decide to have a closet sale, just let us know.
The rest of the list reads like much like it has for most of the last five years; Harvick and Busch, Martin Truex Jr., Brad Keselowski and Denny Hamlin headline the drivers with multiple victories since last June. "I mean, I'm the only one that doesn't have a win in the front four". He won the fifth race of the season at Fontana and had runner-up finishes in each of the last two races headed into Pocono where he won his first race for FRR in 2015 and launched his journeyman-to-champion career metamorphosis.
"Well we had to come from a bad pit stop, 14th place, and we had to pass a lot of cars", Truex Jr. said. Before that, he ran down Harvick for the lead and playoff point with seven laps to go to take the stage win. The decision to stay out did not work out as well for Harvick, who fell to fourth at the end. Harvick's teammate Clint Bowyer finished third and Truex managed to climb back to fourth.
Truex showed why he's still a threat to win his second straight title. The question would be if that's good enough for this salary, as you really want him to be leading laps and winning.
"You're always anxious about something insane or unpredictable situations taking place", he said.

As the crew chief of the No. 78 team, Pearn is confident that the team is continuing to make strides week to week as the season progresses. "I think there's going to be a lot of gains and a lot of people are going to need help and a lot of people are going to bail and it's going to be a different dynamic, that's for sure".
