- The drivers of the Sprint Cup Series will be tackling a road course on Sunday afternoon as they race in the Cheez-It 355 at The Glen at Watkins Glen International.
Dale Earnhardt Jr. paid a visit to Victory Lane last time out, taking the checkered flag in the GoBowling.com 400 at Pocono Raceway.
Kevin Harvick, Joey Logano, Clint Bowyer, and Greg Biffle rounded out the top five drivers at Pocono Raceway, with Jeff Gordon, Jamie McMurray, Ryan Newman, Denny Hamlin, and Kasey Kahne making up the rest of the Top 10.
Gordon’s lead on Earnhardt Jr. in the Sprint Cup Series driver standings is now down to 17 points, with Brad Keselowski sitting 70 points behind in third place after ending up in 23rd place at the GoBowling.com 400.
