Quick Bit: Sporting News tracked live updates and highlights of Sunday’s race, the M&M’s Fan Appreciation 400, held at Pocono Raceway.
When Denny Hamlin takes off on Sunday afternoon, he’ll be chasing more than the checkered flag. He’ll be chasing history.
The Joe Gibbs Racing veteran has found unprecedented success at the Tricky Triangle, claiming six wins on that iconic Pocono asphalt. Hamlin and Jeff Gordon are the only racers to accomplish that feat.
With a victory on Sunday, Hamlin would hold the Pocono crown, though — he’d officially become the winningest racer in track history.
He took a major step in the right direction on Saturday, taking the pole after posting an impressive lap time of 52.944 seconds. Hamlin will be joined in the first row by JGR teammate Kyle Busch
There are a gaggle of racers who could take the checkered flag Sunday. But it’s hard to imagine it meaning more to any one else but Hamlin, who has taken to Pocono in a way not seen very often in motorsports. One more victory and the track record is all his.
