Logano leads final Cup Pocono practice


Joey Logano’s lap of 176.370mph paced final Cup Series practice at Pocono Raceway as Kyle Larson spun moments before its conclusion.

Kevin Harvick was second quickest at 176.336 mph with Martin Truex Jr. third at 175.404 mph, Aric Almirola fourth at 175.193 mph, and Jimmie Johnson fifth at 174.744 mph.


Harvick was fastest in Saturday’s morning session.

Completing the top 10 were Clint Bowyer (174.689 mph), Kurt Busch (174.588 mph), Brad Keselowski (174.564 mph), Larson (174.344 mph) and Chase Elliott (174.304 mph).

Larson wound up with damage to his nose after his spin in Turn 1.

The No. 42 appeared to get loose going through the corner and Larson chased the car up the track before spinning to the inside. Larson was able to keep the rear of the car from hitting the outside wall, but could not get it stopped in time to keep it from making contact with the inside wall.
