Martin Truex, Jr. Quickest in Pocono Happy Hour

After a pole-winning lap in Friday qualifying at Pocono Raceway, Martin Truex, Jr. got the last laugh before race time, as he won final practice at a speed of 176.377 mph.

Brad Keselowski finished second while Kevin Harvick, who works without crew chief Rodney Childers for the first time since 2013, was third.

Jeff Gordon, who has been mid-pack through the weekend, was 24th quick as he prepares for his second start in Dale Earnhardt, Jr.’s No. 88 Chevrolet.

Kurt Busch and Chase Elliott rounded out the top 5 while last week’s winner, Kyle Busch, finished sixth quickest. Kyle Larson, Carl Edwards and Jimmie Johnson completed the top 10.

Paul Menard continues his fast pace this weekend, as he finished eighth quick. Menard will line up third for Sunday’s Pennsylvania 400.
