Kevin Harvick finally got his first win of the year at New Hampshire on Sunday, beating out a star-studded top 10 featuring Denny Hamlin, Erik Jones, Martin Truex Jr. and Kyle Busch, but it’s going to take one heck of a performance to win again this week.
That’s mainly because Kyle Busch is the two-time defending champion at Pocono Raceway and he has three wins in his last four races there.
But Harvick getting that first win is huge especially since it absolutely guarantees him a spot in the playoffs as the postseason creeps closer and closer.
Busch on the other hand has four wins already this year and is under no pressure to get a victory. That in and of itself makes him almost more dangerous as he can race relaxed at a track he loves to frequent.
Martin Truex Jr. also has a win at Pocono in the last two years, so he will also be a man to look out for in Pennsylvania.
The Xfinity Series will be racing in Iowa this week while the Truck Series will also be in Pocono.
The Gander RV 400 will take place Sunday, July 28. Live coverage begins at 3 p.m. ET.
The Gander RV 400 will be broadcast nationally on NBCSN. The race also can be live-streamed on the NBC Sports App or by subscribing to fuboTV, which offers a seven-day free trial .
