    “Pocono is a good track for us. I like both Pocono and Michigan, so we have some solid tracks coming up for the No. 88 gang. We were in the simulator this week working on Pocono.

We're going in the right direction.”

    Kurt Busch is 40/1 this week at Pocono.

The win was Busch's 28th career Cup Series victory, his third at Pocono and his lone triumph of the 2016 season.
