Tony Stewart Sitting on the Pocono Pole, Again!

Tony Stewart will be sitting on the Pocono pole for the third time in the last four races there, however, this is the first time he will have earned it with speed since both of last year's races were set by points with Stewart leading. Stewart laid down the fast lap of 171.393 mph to take the pole position away from Juan Pablo Montoya by just under three-tenths of a second.

Four-time Pocono winner Denny Hamlin finished third followed by another four-time winner in Jeff Gordon. 2003 Penn 500 winner Ryan Newman finished fifth to close out the top-five.

Saturday's first of two practices begins at 9:00 am (ET). A few hours after Happy Hour I will have a write up on how the sessions went along with my top rated drivers for Sunday's race.

'Bout time the Smoke started to rise. Uh oh. He could get on a roll for a month or two right now.

you're right Gene, this is right about the time he gets smokin, or at least the beginning of July is. It would be nice to see him get up there and compete for the title. H'es kind of the forgotten one, which is hard to believe just because of how he used to talk so much.
