One of these races, Martin Truex Jr. is going to get rewarded again for all of this bad luck. It seems like he dominates almost everywhere the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series goes, but bad luck strikes him in the end forcing him to a finish not anywhere indicative on where he should have been. In fact, if not for that bad luck, Truex would easily have had at least five or six wins already this season.
So, with how he was rewarded in the Coca-Cola 600 back in May, maybe the return trip to Pocono this weekend will return the favor in similar fashion.
We all know Toyota’s are going to be strong this weekend. They dominated the show at Indy last weekend in leading all but 22 combined laps in the X-Finity Series and Cup Series races at the 2.5-mile track.
Well, we return to a 2.5-mile track similar to Indy this weekend, and with how strong Toyota was at Indy, look for that not to change this weekend either.
Add in the Truex factor.
Truex is actually pretty good at Pocono as he led 97 of the 160 laps and won there last June. Now, it’s his turn to dominate again and actually get rewarded with a win in the end.
Kyle Busch led all but 21 laps in last Sunday’s Brickyard 400 and I think Truex can do a repeat performance this weekend in Pocono. With how he’s due for another win, and how strong his No. 78 Toyota was at Indy too, look for him to be up front challenging for the win on Sunday.
This may be Truex’s race this weekend.
