NASCAR Sprint Cup At Poconos: Where To Watch Live Online Stream, Preview, Starting Lineup, Weather

on August 04 2013 10:36 AM

Jimmie Johnson earned his second pole at Pocono Raceway this year, and is certainly hoping the results are the same on Sunday as they were in June.

The favorite to capture his sixth Sprint Cup Series championship, Johnson set a new track record of 180.654 mph after starting his qualifying lap late and will lead off the GowBowling.com 400 in Long Pond, Pa., just ahead of Kyle Busch.

Alluding to Johnson passing inspection at the last minute, Busch made not so veiled comments regarding his rival's second pole victory of the year.

"A lot of these other teams figure out how to play by the rules,” Busch said to USA Today. “It seems like there's one that's late more often than the rest. … Every time they're late, they're always fast. Maybe we need to be late."

Busch’s soreness may be attributable to Johnson’s history in the Poconos. Johnson took full advantage of his position last time, leading 128 of the 160 laps for the victory.

After Busch, Carl Edwards will start in third, followed by Ryan Newman, and Kurt Busch. Currently in 16th place in the Cup standings, Newman made some headway last week by just edging out Johnson for the victory at the Brickyard.

The forecast calls for partly cloudy skies and temperatures in the high 60s to low 70s at start time. The race starts at 1 p.m. ET, and will be broadcast by ESPN. Watch their live online stream at Watch ESPN here by providing your cable information.
