Comments: NASCAR Picks for Pocono

The Sprint Cup Series returns to Pocono Raceway this weekend, and while the 2.5-mile, triangle-shaped track has been accused of producing boring racing, fantasy owners probably shouldn't complain. After all, the drivers that were supposed to perform well at the track in June lived up to expectations for the most part. Starting with Jimmie Johnson's dominating win, the drivers with the top-seven average finishes at the track all finished in the top 12 with six cracking the top 10. Meanwhile, the four other drivers that notched top-10 finishes were Kyle Busch, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Joey Logano and Greg Biffle so it's not like there were any major surprises at the front of the field. Boring or not, fantasy owners should be hoping for a repeat performance this weekend. When all the big names run well, it is usually good news for fantasy owners.
