Updated Driver Rankings for Pocono


The Cup Series drew for the starting positions for the race at Pocono Saturday. NASCAR also announced that they will apply the traction compound to all three corners this weekend. The “sticky stuff” made a difference in the July race at Pocono last year and I think it will again this weekend. I factored in the pit stalls, starting positions and which drivers ran well in the second race at Pocono last year to determine my Driver Rankings for the race Saturday.
