Pocono Raceway in Long Pond, Pa. hosts the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Party in the Poconos 400 on Sunday. Jimmie Johnson, the current Sprint Cup Series points leader (473 points), holds pole position after rain washed out Friday's qualifying runs. Accordingly, the rest of the lineup follows the same pattern, so the top five is rounded out by Carl Edwards, Clint Bowyer, Matt Kenseth and Kevin Harvick.
It's the 14th race in this season's Sprint Cup Series and the bad weather on Friday and Saturday is likely a thing of the past, as reported by Brian Neudorff. There's a small chance of rain, but things should stay mostly dry for the race at this point.
The television coverage will be carried by TNT. Their pre-race coverage begins at 12 p.m. ET, and the Green Flag is expected to be at approximately 1:18 p.m., according to Jayski.com. If you can't watch on your TV, then the next best option might be to tune in to the Motor Racing Network for radio coverage.
If that's not appealing to you, there are plenty of online outlets with which to track things, including NASCAR's official website. If you want to spring for a little more than leaderboards, you can sign up for NASCAR's RaceView Premium, which offers a 3-D simulated progress-tracker, packed with all kinds of metrics and other goodies.
