The drivers of the Sprint Cup Series will be back in action on Sunday afternoon as they hit the track at Pocono Raceway for the Pocono 400.

Jimmie Johnson raced to his second win of the Sprint Cup Series season last time out, taking the checkered flag in the FedEx 400 at Dover International Speedway.

Kevin Harvick and Matt Kenseth followed Johnson across the finish line at Dover, with Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Clint Bowyer rounding out the top five drivers. Aric Almirola, Martin Truex Jr., Joey Logano, Kasey Kahne, and Marcos Ambrose made up the rest of the Top 10 at the FedEx 400, while Greg Biffle was 11th.

Biffle now sits just one point up on Kenseth in top spot in the Sprint Cup Series standings, with Johnson 33 points back of the leader in fifth place on that list.

Brad Keselowski and Jeff Gordon won the races at Pocono last season, with Gordon taking the checkered flag in Cup events at the track five times in his career. Denny Hamlin has visited Victory Lane at Pocono four times in the past.

Johnson, Tony Stewart, Kurt Busch, and Carl Edwards each have two career Cup wins at Pocono, while Biffle, Kahne, and Ryan Newman have all won there once.

After racing at Pocono the drivers of the Sprint Cup Series will move on to Michigan International Speedway for the Quicken Loans 400 on June 17. The circuit then rounds out its June schedule with events at Sonoma and Kentucky.
