It took Green-White-Checkered to settle today’s Pocono Mountains 150, but Austin Dillon withstood the pressure and pulled away to the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series victory at Pocono Raceway.
But Reddick kept going and on the restart with three laps left, he got some payback by spinning Quiroga coming off of Turn 2. Unfortunately for Reddick, that drew the wrath of NASCAR, who told him to park his truck for the remainder of the race.
Meanwhile, Dillon and fellow Sprint Cup regular Clint Bowyer led the field to the green flag on Lap 62, two laps past the race’s scheduled distance.
Bowyer, filling in for John Wes Townley in the No. 05 Athenian Motorsports Toyota Tundra, was quickly gobbled up on the restart while Dillon and his No. 3 Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet Silverado rode off into the proverbial sunset.
For a while, it appeared pole sitter Kyle Larson would challenge Dillon for Truck supremacy on the Tricky Triangle. Larson led 21 of 60 laps but shortly after pitting for right side tires on Lap 35, his No. 32 Turner Scott Motorsports Chevy started to slow down with engine issues.
The problems under the hood ultimately relegated Larson to an 18th place finish. He’ll be hoping for better luck in tomorrow’s 400-mile Sprint Cup race at Pocono, which he’ll start from pole position.
Blaney was able to retain his CWTS points lead by seven points over Sauter. The series now prepares for its next race at Michigan International Speedway in two weeks.
