This weekend NASCAR tackles the two and a half mile Tricky Triangle at Pocono.†For Kyle Larson, after getting his first top five finish of the year last week, he’s thinking…

(Larson) “Hopefully, this will kinda transition some momentum for us, for our team and we can start getting some more top five and top ten finishes.”

For Jimmie Johnson, racing at Pocono usually means worrying about things like…

(Johnson) “Fuel strategy is such a player in how the outcome of that race works out…”

But, with four wins under his belt…

(Johnson) “We can go up there and not care.”

Johnson made his voice-over debut this week on Nick Jr.’s Bubble Guppies, playing ‘Jimmie’, the host of an home improvement show.

Brian Vickers still sidelined with blood clots, takes a job with NBC in the broadcast booth as part of their NASCAR coverage.

And, Trevor Bayne gets fined $20,000 and placed on probation until the end†of the year, for leaving his car without the supervision of safety officials after a wreck at the Dover race.
