LONG POND, Pa. (AP) - Denny Hamlin won again at Pocono, pulling away from teammate Kyle Busch following a late restart Sunday in the 500-mile race at the massive 2.5-mile oval.
The victory was Hamlin's fourth of the season and fourth in nine career starts at the "tricky triangle." Busch held off Tony Stewart for second in his 200th career start. Points leader Kevin Harvick was fourth, followed by four-time defending series champion Jimmie Johnson.
The start was delayed 90 minutes by rain then another 10 minutes or so while officials patched a pothole at the end of pit road inadvertently opened up by a jet dryer. Once the rain cleared, Hamlin dominated at one of his favorite tracks.
