Denny Hamlin held Kevin Harvick on Sunday night to win the subsequent Cup race at the end of the week at Pocono Raceway. However, Clint Bowyer and Alex Bowman’s fight for places during the very final lap stole the show.
In the second Cup race at Pocono, Erik Jones finished at third while Chase Elliott and Aric Almirola completed the “Top 5”. Additionally, it was Hamlin’s 6th win at Pocono which puts him alongside Jeff Gordon. And it was his 41st triumph which moved him to nineteenth on NASCAR’s all-time list.
Clint Bowyer and Alex Bowman’s wheel on wheel fight for places
Clint Bowyer and Alex Bowman were seen battling each other on the last lap of Sunday’s NASCAR Cup Series Pocono 350. They were fighting for the eighth position.
Although, as the two fell off of the last turn, they touched. At that point, as they moved toward the line they kept on hammering into one another. At long last, Bowyer wound up with eighth after a race to the finish line.

After the race, Clint Bowyer said, “That was a tough race. We were just so lost today. By ourselves, we were good and could turn in a good lap, but in traffic, we struggled.”
Hamlin’s triumph at Pocono
Hamlin hustled to take his fourth triumph of the season. Earlier this Saturday, he had a problem during the final stage which forced him to back down while chasing Harvick down the stretch.
Around 25 hours after the incident, Hamlin flooded past Harvick and managed a 3-second lead over him.
The Daytona 500 victor won the finale of the first ‘NASCAR tripleheader’ at one track. The race was deferred by a few hours due to lightning and heavy downpour.
They ran six laps before the race was stopped for about 51 minutes due to a downpour. NASCAR ran a few pace laps before the race at long last became environmentally friendly around 6:15 p.m. It was a race against time to finish the full 350 miles.
Downpour and lightning constrained a few delays in Stage 1, and on the grounds that Pocono Raceway doesn’t have lights, took steps to close down the track before the full 140 laps could be finished.
There were no mishaps or deferrals over the last 55 laps.
