Toyota hasn't won a Cup race at MIS since 2011, with Chevrolet and Ford...

BROOKLYN, Mich. (AP) Just over halfway through the Sprint Cup regular season, Dale Earnhardt Jr. can be about as carefree as he wants on the racetrack.
''We could run terrible,'' he said. ''We could have accidents every week and still make the Chase.''

Taking victory at Pocono Raceway takes a unique set of skills and ability; from the driver, team and car itself.
It has proved to bite some of the legends of our sport ending the career of Bobby Allison in 1988 – while also holding a special place in the hearts of those who conquered the dynamic triple turns of the Pennsylvania track since 1971.
I was shaking in the last four...
