Pocono Raceway adds XFINITY race for '16
Pocono Raceway officials announced Tuesday the addition of a NASCAR XFINITY Series event to the track's 2016 racing schedule. The 250-mile race is scheduled for Saturday, June 4, and will be part of a three-race weekend at the 2.5-mile track. The Sprint Cup Series' Axalta "We Paint Winners" 400 is slated for Sunday, June 5 while the Pocono 200 ARCA Racing Series event will kick off the weekend's racing activities. It will be the first appearance for the XFINITY Series at Pocono, which has hosted NASCAR-sanctioned events since 1974. Track president and CEO Brandon Igdalsky said race fans "have been asking for this to happen for several years." Comcast, parent company of series sponsor XFINITY , is based in Philadelphia. "From Day 1 we've been focused on enhancing the way fans experience NASCAR and highlighting the competition and youth in the XFINITY Series," Matt Lederer, director of sports brand marketing for Comcast, said. "The addition of an event at Pocono Raceway in our home state ... will help carry the momentum built in the first year of our partnership into 2016." In addition to the June race weekend, the Pennsylvania 400 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race is scheduled for July 31 at Pocono, along with the Pocono Mountains 150 Camping World Truck Series race and Modspace 125 ARCA event. Camping World Truck Series teams have been competing at Pocono since 2010 while the ARCA Series began competing at the track in 1987. "Pocono is a very unique track," current XFINITY Series points leader Chris Buescher said. "I'm excited that we are adding a new track to the XFINITY Series schedule. I've raced there a considerable amount in the ARCA Series and have always enjoyed it. It will be a good challenge for the XFINITY teams."

Progress is evident for Truex Jr., Furniture Row
Martin Truex Jr . led a race-high 172 laps on Saturday night at Kansas Speedway , which serves as the "home" track for Denver-based Furniture Row Racing . A mechanical issue kept him out of Victory Lane, but his single-car team was the class of the field -- just ask race-winner Kyle Busch . "The 78 was probably the fastest car," Busch said of his Toyota teammate. It's something to get used to. Furniture Row Racing , owned by Barney Visser and stationed near the Rocky Mountains as opposed to "Race City USA," has developed into one of the premier teams in NASCAR while operating under the radar to the west of the Mississippi River. RELATED: Learn more about Furniture Row Coming off a year in which the single-car organization qualified for the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup for the second time in three years, and then promptly followed that with a berth in the Championship 4 Round at Homestead-Miami Speedway , the organization may be even better in 2016. This season's results prove last year's playoff push was no fluke. A manufacturer change from Chevrolet to Toyota brought alignment with Joe Gibbs Racing , and Truex is consistently one of the fastest cars every week. He and Furniture Row appear in excellent shape to qualify for the postseason for the second consecutive year, and perhaps another deep run is possible. Here's how driver and team got to this point. The past Visser began his career in the manufacturing business more than 40 years ago, starting the Furniture Row company in 1972 after growing up dreaming not of racing, but of business. That drive turned into a successful career in the west as the owner of several retailers -- but when Visser decided to cut back, he caught the NASCAR bug. Racing as a hobby at Colorado National Speedway led to his desire to start a NASCAR XFINITY Series team, which has evolved into the successful single-car Sprint Cup team. (The first year in Cup was 2005.) The organization earned its first win in 2011 when Regan Smith won the historic Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway . In 2013, Kurt Busch qualified for the postseason and would finish the season 10th in points, then the best standing in team history. That changed last year. Truex Jr. joined the company before the 2014 season after losing his ride at Michael Waltrip Racing when that organization went from three cars to two. In 2015, Truex and first-year crew chief Cole Pearn led Furniture Row to its second-ever win when he conquered the "Tricky Triangle" of Pocono. It capped a four-race stretch in which Truex led 454 laps and asserted Furniture Row as a premier series power. A technical alliance with Richard Childress Racing buoyed Furniture Row, then running Chevrolets, last year -- and Truex would advance deeper into the Chase than any of RCR's three drivers. The present Speed hasn't been a problem for Furniture Row Racing after the switch to Toyota. If anything, the team has been faster this year. "If we were going to run and be happy running in the middle of the field week in and week out, we would have been fine where we were," Furniture Row General Manager Joe Garone said before the season. "But Chevrolet has their hands full. They have plenty of teams and, as a new one coming in we were always going to be the bottom team. They can only spread themselves so thin. So, honestly, there wasn't the opportunity for us to get to the upper tier. "Toyota looked at it completely differently. They could see the benefits that we bring to the table as a single-car team partnered with one of their teams, and they jumped right on board." Truex has one top-five and four top-10 finishes through 11 races, but that doesn't fully tell the story. His 370 laps led are behind only Joe Gibbs Racing 's Kyle Busch and Carl Edwards and Stewart-Haas Racing 's Kevin Harvick . His average start (12.2) and average finish (12.7) both rank in the top 10 in NASCAR; only six other drivers can say the same. In short, there's been plenty of speed, just not finishes -- Kansas was shaping up to be one of the most dominant showings of the season until a fluke tire issue caused the No. 78 to pit from the lead late. "I couldn't believe it," Truex said after the race. "It's frustrating, but that's how it goes. We're going to win some races (this year), for sure. We keep bringing cars like that, we're going to win some. ... It's tough, but it happens. It's part of racing." Watch: Truex Jr. stays positive after tough finish The future Truex Jr. and Furniture Row Racing have proven to be a good fit, and the addition of sponsors such as Bass Pro Shop and Auto Owners Insurance help the team move toward a reality of running two cars. In July of last year, Visser told SiriusXM NASCAR Radio: "We'd like to have (a second team) by '17. ... We think maybe '17 it's going to roll around the way we need it to. We're going to have to attract the sponsors. When we finally get the sponsors, we'll be able to do it." A technical alliance with Joe Gibbs Racing will likely prove fruitful for years, as the JGR Toyota Camrys appear to have a leg up on the field, and Truex himself sits above Denny Hamlin and Matt Kenseth in the points standings. "I don't like to look back, but I think it's safe to say that we had the opportunity to have two win stickers on our car at this point of the season," Truex said before Kansas, which could have been win No. 3. "We've gone through a major transition by switching to Toyota and having a new technical alliance with Joe Gibbs Racing . I truly feel that we've come a long way in a short period of time, and feel the rest of the season looks promising for our Furniture Row Racing team."
Byron learns about burnouts, balancing success
NASCAR's latest winner in the Camping World Truck Series admitted after the fact that "I didn't even know how to do a burnout," but William Byron likely will have plenty of more opportunities to figure out that portion of the post-race celebration. Less than a week ago, the 18-year-old won in just his fifth career start in the series, piloting the Kyle Busch Motorsports No. 9 Toyota to victory at Kansas Speedway . "I just kind of found the gears and watched the smoke in the back and it was just really cool," Byron said of his celebration after losing the lead but rallying on a late-race restart that extended the race three laps beyond its scheduled 167-lap distance. He became the eighth different winner for KBM, which began fielding entries in the series in 2010. Busch, the owner/driver, has earned 29 of the organization's 47 career victories. Byron will be chasing career win No. 2 this weekend as the NCWTS heads to Dover International Speedway for the series' fifth stop of the season, the JACOB Companies 200, slated to get under way Friday at 5:30 p.m. ET (FS1, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio). Byron will be joined in the race by KBM teammates Christopher Bell and Daniel Suarez . A year ago, Byron wrapped up the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East title with a ninth-place finish at Dover. It was his first time at the track and because rain forced the cancellation of practice and qualifying, his first laps on the 1-mile concrete track were run under race conditions. "Going back and being able to have practice to wrap my hands around the race track a little bit more will be helpful," Byron said. "But also to have that instant experience I did last year. We had 125 laps of pretty intense racing." Byron didn't begin his racing career until he was 14, somewhat late by today's standards. But he quickly moved up through the ranks and landed a Late Model ride with JR Motorsports in 2014. Last year's K&N title came while competing for HScott Motorsports with Justin Marks . A year ago, crew chief Rudy Fugle helped guide Erik Jones to three victories and the series championship. Helping guide another youngster into Victory Lane, he said, "was different." "The last couple of years I've had some different drivers, more drivers (who were) … expected to win more out of the box," Fugle said. "Now, with a young driver again, and learning how to coach him and how to do the right things, it was fun to watch, too, because he's just got the raw talent and the speed just out of the box that you don't have to teach." His Kansas victory all but assured Byron of a spot in this year's Chase for those competing in the Truck Series. The top eight drivers (based on wins and/or points) will qualify for the seven-race playoff. Series regulars Johnny Sauter (Daytona) and John Hunter Nemechek (Atlanta) have also earned wins this season. A dozen more races remain before the Chase gets underway. And of course there's high school graduation. "My graduation is May 27 and actually an off-weekend, so I'm pretty fortunate with that and get to enjoy that," Byron said. "It's a good balance between going to school and being a completely normal kid and people really have no idea what's going on when we get to the race track. "Then the cool part is that I like to just kind of do my business at school and keep my grades up and then get to the race track and enjoy myself." Bryon is seventh in points in the Truck Series with finishes of third and first in his last two outings. He finished 13th in the season-opening race at Daytona while engine trouble resulted in a 32nd-place finish at Atlanta.

Hamlin recovers, paces final practice at Bristol
RELATED: Practice 2 results " Final practice results Denny Hamlin made a solid recovery from a collision in Saturday's earlier practice session, setting the pace in final NASCAR Sprint Cup Series practice at Bristol Motor Speedway . Hamlin, sporting repairs on the nose of his Joe Gibbs Racing No. 11 Toyota, logged a best lap of 126.129 mph on the .533-mile track. His car suffered slight right-front damage after making contact with Danica Patrick 's No. 10 Chevrolet in Saturday's earlier practice. Sunoco Rookie of the Year points leader Chase Elliott snuck in the second-fastest lap in the closing minute of practice, turning a 125 .823 mph speed in the Hendrick Motorsports No. 24 Chevrolet. Martin Truex Jr . landed the third-fastest lap ( 125 .749 mph) in the Furniture Row Racing No. 78 Toyota. Coors Light Pole winner Carl Edwards , Hamlin's JGR teammate in the No. 19 Toyota, was fourth-fastest at 125 .691 mph. Edwards, who topped Sprint Cup qualifying for the second straight week, will start first in Sunday's Food City 500 (1 p.m. ET, FOX, PRN, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio). Kyle Busch , winner of the last four NASCAR national series events, completed the top five in another Joe Gibbs-owned entry. His No. 18 Toyota was fifth-fastest at 125 .395 mph in the 55-minute session. Patrick, the other driver involved in the early-session altercation, also returned to the track after repairs, but brushed the outside wall in the early stages of final practice. She wound up 30th in the 40-car field on the final leaderboard. RELATED: Patrick, Hamlin collide in opening practice Kyle Busch fastest in early Saturday session Kyle Busch kept up his show of speed in Saturday morning practice for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, topping the leaderboard at Bristol Motor Speedway . Busch powered the Joe Gibbs Racing No. 18 Toyota to a best lap of 126.370 mph in the 55-minute session. The reigning Sprint Cup champ will start fifth in Sunday's Food City 500 (1 p.m. ET, FOX, PRN, SiriusXM), the eighth of 36 points-paying races for the series this year. Sunoco Rookie of the Year points leader Chase Elliott was second-fastest at 126.253 mph in the Hendrick Motorsports No. 24 Chevrolet. Kurt Busch wound up third-best (126.137 mph) in the Stewart-Haas Racing No. 41 Chevy. Aric Almirola ( 125 .988 mph) turned the fourth-fastest lap around the .533-mile track in the Richard Petty Motorsports No. 43 Ford. Coors Light Pole Award winner Carl Edwards and Joey Logano , a two-time Bristol winner, tied for the fifth-fastest lap at 125 .972 mph. Denny Hamlin and Danica Patrick made slight contact with approximately 12 minutes remaining in the 55-minute practice. Hamlin's No. 11 Toyota closed rapidly on Patrick's No. 10 Chevrolet entering Turn 1, with the right-front corner of Hamlin's car crunching into the left-rear fender of Patrick's. Defending race winner Matt Kenseth landed the eighth-fastest lap.
