From Track Side with Melli & Other Stuff
Denny Hamlin won the rain delayed race at Pocono congrats to him and his crew, but it wasn't an easy win, the last 20 laps was a crash, bump fest which is good racing. It seems to me that Denny has to have something happen in the background for him to pick it up and win. He was set on winning this race due to his grandmother passing away last week and he did it for her. To stay in the top tier in Cup you must stay that focused not just when something happens to fire you up. Hendrick struggled all day Jimmy was 2 laps down with a car that was running on only 7cs, Mark struggled keeping his butt in the top ten, Jeff was ok and finished in the top ten, and Dales struggles continue, but there may be light at the end of his dark tunnel, I see thing turning around for the 88.
All in all it was a good race with only 5 weeks left, it's going to be very intense with the top 12 racing to stay there until the Chase begins, let the racing being.
Side note...Brian is doing well after surgery and is almost back to normal thank the good Lord.
Ciao for now
