It seems if you want to have any shot at running well in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series these days, you have to be behind the wheel of a Chevrolet SS. A week ago Ryan Newman took the checkered flag for the first time in 2013 in the Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis, and following the No. 39 Quicken Loans Chevrolet to the line were three more bowties.
Jimmie Johnson, Kasey Kahne and Tony Stewart were the others who helped Team Chevrolet to a 1-2-3-4 finish in Indianapolis, which is one of the most technical and difficult races of the year. Heading into Pocono the bar was set rather high for the manufacturer, which was atop the manufacturer standings.

Kasey Kahne looked like he had lost the GoBowling.com 400 fom Pocono Raceway when his Hendick Motorsports teammate, Jeff Gordon, passed him for the lead.
Kahne was granted a second chance after a late race caution.
“We about gave it away,” Kahne said in victory lane. “That final restart, (Gordon) had a great jump. Kurt (Busch) pushed me all the way to Turn 1.”
The 1-2 finish...
Kasey Kahne bowled over the competition at Pocono on Sunday scoring a strike in the Go Bowling.com 400.
Kahne was able to get around his Hendrick Motorsports teammate Jeff Gordon late in the race to find victory lane at the 2.5 mile Pocono Raceway. The win is the second of the year for Kahne and 16th of his career.

Kasey Kahne passed his Hendrick Motorsports teammate Jeff Gordon on a late-race restart to win Sunday's wild and crash-filled GoBowling.com 400 NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Pocono Raceway.
And with his second victory of the season, Kahne is virtually assured of a slot in the Chase for the Sprint Cup, NASCAR's season-ending, 10-race championship round.
Kahne, who won earlier...
In the June race at Pocono Raceway, Kasey Kahne barely made a full lap before his drive shaft U-joint failed and forced the No. 5 Chevy SS to the garage.
On Sunday, Kahne returned to exact his revenge.
Kahne led 39 laps as part of a dominant Hendrick Motorsports' parade in the GoBowling.com 400 and edged his teammate Jeff Gordon by 1.392 seconds at the line for his second win...
Ryan Newman, driver of the Haas Automation Chevrolet for Stewart-Haas Racing (SHR), overcame an ill-handling racecar and a series of slow stops on pit road throughout the GoBowling.com 400 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race Sunday at Pocono (Pa.) Raceway to record a fourth-place finish.
“It was a good run for our Haas Automation Chevrolet but not as good as it could have been,” said...
It would be the most blind-obvious thing to say that Sunday at Pocono was a really, really good day for Kasey Kahne and his No. 5 team. He won the race plus jumped up one spot to eighth in the points. Even bigger than all that, it was Kasey's second win of the season and that all but guarantees he and his team will be in the 2013 Chase.

Kasey Kahne made Team Hendrick proud on Sunday at Pocono after he took the win in a day they totally dominated. A wild afternoon started with pole-sitter Jimmie Johnson leading, but when he ran into trouble just shy of the mid-point of the race, Kahne rose to the top spot. Then when a late caution sprung a dash for the win, it was Jeff Gordon taking over the lead...
