It’s Tricky, it’s Tricky (Tricky)
Roush Fenway Racing has run 206 Cup races at ‘The Tricky Triangle’ dating back to 1988. A Roush Fenway Ford has visited victory lane on four occasions in the Cup series, with the first coming in 2005 with Carl Edwards. Kurt Busch followed with a win in the July race of that same year, one of his three victories for Jack Roush in 2005. Three years later, Edwards found winners circle again in 2008, and Greg Biffle carded the organization’s most recent win at the 2.5-mile track back in 2010.
Roush Fenway has finished in the second position 13 times at Pocono with six different drivers. All in all, Roush Fenway has finished first or second 17 times at the triangular track.
Tale of the Tape
Overall RFR has 72 top-10 and 45 top-five results at Pocono along with three poles and the four wins. Mark Martin earned back-to-back poles in 1990 and 1991, before capturing his third in 1996.
Where They Rank
Coming off the Coca-Cola 600 and a top-five for Ricky Stenhouse Jr., he is 19th in the points standings, just behind teammate Ryan Newman in 18th. Just 13 points separate positions 15-19 in points as the battle for the playoff spots continue into the summer months.
