UPDATE: Kevin Harvick won Saturday’s Pocono Organics 325 and will start 20th on Sunday at the Pocono 350. Ryan Preece finished 20th, and will have the pole position.
The NASCAR Cup Series is hosting a doubleheader at Pocono Raceway this weekend. On Saturday, the Pocono Organics 325 gets going at 3:30 p.m. ET on FOX. On Sunday, the Pocono 350 will run at 4 p.m. on FS1.
The starting grid for the Pocono Organics 325 was determined by random draw that accounted for where each driver stands in the points race. For Sunday’s Pocono 350, the starting grid will be situated based on Saturday’s results. The first 20 positions on Sunday will be an inversion of the top 20 finishers from Saturday. The second 20 positions on Sunday will be the bottom 20 from Saturday in the order they finished.
Denny Hamlin is the defending champ of the 350, while Kyle Busch is the defending champ of the 325. Busch won the 350 the two races prior to Hamlin. Busch is a sizable favorite in the 325 at +450, and if he doesn’t have a bad day, will likely be the favorite in the 350. Kevin Harvick follows him at +650, then Hamlin (+700), Chase Elliott and Martin Truex Jr. (both +750).
Here is the full starting lineup for the Pocono 350.
