You have to go back to 1974 to find the last time two drivers dominated the first 13 races in a similar manner.
Clint Bowyer showed a ton of speed last August behind the wheel of the Nature's Bakery machine at Pocono, and on Sunday, that momentum maintained into this race.
Kevin Harvick ($13,500) - You might be surprised to learn that Happy has never won a Cup Series race at Pocono, but, um, he's pretty good here, finishing second here both races last season.
Truex made a decision to stay on the track while other race leaders pitted.
This year's quest for the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series championship is far from a two horse race. Each driver spent time in front and battled for the lead over the final laps until the final restart on the 2 1/2-mile track. "You're always a little bit nervous just hoping you do everything right and hoping two guys don't get that bumper-to-bumper kind of tandem thing going and get a run on you".
Busch also has 47 Cup wins and 50 in the Truck Series to become perhaps the most dominant driver across all three national NASCAR series in history. Justin correctly picked Busch in third and received three bonus points while Randy picked Busch to finish second.
"I mean, if you're looking for the banging doors and fenders and things like that and running one another hard for a win, there's too much to lose in vehicle performance in doing that sort of stuff", Busch said.
But what Igdalsky and Co. can't control is the core product and ultimately, that's the excitement on the track where there was little this time around.
President Trump calls off Philadelphia Eagles' White House visit over anthem dispute

But eyebrows are raised from Saturday when his vehicle was disqualified after winning the Xfinity Series race.
He debuted with DEI, moved to Michael Waltrip Racing, saw that team and his sponsor disappear and then got on with a fledgling Furniture Row Racing organization and totaled one lap led and one top-5 finish in his first season. Johnson is starting to build up momentum, and I wouldn't put it past him snapping the longest drought of his career very soon.
A year after he made his Cup debut at Pocono, Darrell Wallace Jr. was the first auto to the garage on Sunday.
A promising Friday didn't produce a satisfying Sunday for defending Pocono 400 victor Ryan Blaney. Elliott, winless in 90 career starts, has three top-five finishes this season. Larson is winless this season and is trying to make it two straight at the track.
"Obviously those guys, the 4 and the 18, have done an unbelievable job all year, and we've been close for sure, and today was a great step in the right direction and let us know that we were kind of working the right way".
Caution Flags: 6 for 23 laps.
He expected to race for the win again on Sunday.
Lead Changes: 11 among 7 drivers.
With 10 laps in the stage, Harvick held a slight lead over Truex. Track position is so important and if you get behind you lose so much time to the leader. Together, the trio has taken top-five spots together in four races this season and have a combined 28 top fives on the season.
