Martin Truex Jr. pulled away off a restart with seven laps left to win the NASCAR Cup race at Pocono Raceway in Long Pond, Pennsylvania, on Sunday and thrust himself back into the championship picture. Kyle Busch and Kevin Harvick had turned the season into a two-driver show, winning nine of the first 13 races. Each driver spent time in front and battled for the lead over the final laps until the final restart on the 2 1/2-mile track. Truex took the checkered flag in the No. 78 Toyota after two straight runner-up finishes in a season where he was almost an afterthought compared to the Busch-Harvick dominance. Kyle Larson finished second Sunday, followed by Busch and Harvick. Brad Keselowski was fifth.
