Dale Earnhardt Jr. got his first career victory at Pocono yesterday adding to perhaps his best season since 2004. “I feel like I’m such a lucky guy to have this second opportunity again to be competitive,” Earnhardt said.
Earnhardt beat out Brad Keslowski whose engine overheated as the race wore on. “It was definitely a mistake because the engine made it,” Keselowski said, rubbing his face. “It probably shouldn’t have.”
Kurt Busch, Denny Hamlin and Kyle Larson rounded out the top five.
