Pocono Nascar RacePocono Nascar Race, Kevin Harvick conserved enough fuel and kept Kyle Busch in a two-lap overtime finish to win Sunday’s rain-delayed Camping World Truck Series race at Pocono Raceway.

Seventeen laps were completed in a good service scheduled for Saturday Sam RV Emergency Road 125 before heavy rain fell in the 2.5-mile triangular track. NASCAR was forced to postpone the remainder of the race one day.

Harvick, driving his No. 2 Chevrolet, started on pole and dominated the race by leading 44 of 53 laps. He gambled on fuel in recent years is when he fell on the track, while most of the drivers of the lead lap came in a final round of pit stops.

“I think you saw the 18 [Busch] way back through there with the tires,” said Harvick. “The tires still meant something. Our truck was so fast that there was really no reason to give up track position to come to the tires, as they were good on fuel.

“That’s one of the shortest race I’ve run in a long time, and the strategy changes a bit. You have to leave quickly and try to put in place quickly in the strategy, and do not have many opportunities to do things if you are off the pace.

“They [the team] just did a great job of hitting it right next to the truck, and that makes life easier.”

Kyle Busch finished second, followed by James Buescher, Johnny Sauter and Austin Dillon.
