The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series continues on Sunday with the Party in the Poconos 400 at Pocono Raceway. Jimmie Johnson holds the pole position for the race, due to poor weather washing out the qualifying on Friday. Johnson is also the points leader for the Sprint Cup Series, with 473 points.
Last year's winner, Joey Logano, will start at No. 21 for the race. Carl Edwards, Clint Bowyer, Matt Kenseth, Kevin Harvick and Dale Earnhardt Jr. round out the top three rows due to their position in the standings. We're nearing the halfway point of the Sprint Cup Series, as this is race No. 14 out of 36 for the season.
The green flag is estimated for 1:18 p.m. ET, according to Jayski.com. The race will be televised on TNT, as FOX's portion of the Sprint Cup Series has passed. TNT will begin their pre-race coverage at 12 p.m.. Here's all you need to know below:
