NASCAR At Pocono Update: Kurt and Kyle Busch Run First And Second With 40 Laps Remaining

Kurt Busch got the lead on the restart from an hour and 40 minute rain delay and has led the Good Sam RV Insurance 500 at Pocono since, but his brother Kyle is closing in with just 40 laps to go. Kyle Busch spun early in the race to draw the first caution flag, but his Toyota has been fast throughout the race.

Brad Keselowski runs third, followed by Jimmie Johnson. Drama may be developing with the five-time defending Sprint Cup champion however, as Johnson reported that his Chevrolet has a vibration in the transmission.

Denny Hamlin, who has led the most laps - nothing new for him at Pocono, runs fifth, ahead of teammate Joey Logano. It was Logano who sat in front of the field during the rain delay, but he has yet to get his Toyota back to the front since the race went back green.

Jeff Gordon, Dale Earnhardt Jr, Carl Edwards, and Paul Menard round out the top-10.
