Given time, Buescher will grow as a driver, be it with FRM or RFR. Either way, he'll post more results as he matures, and he will be a Sprint Cup winner again. It's too early to gauge when he'll become an actual Cup title contender, but that day could very well come.
Well, Monday was a great day for Chris Buescher. With the fog rolling in at the Pennsylvania 400, he stayed out while others pitted to have the fuel to run the final 22 laps that never were as the race was red flagged. With impending stormy weather ensuring things would not be re-started, the 24-year old claimed his first win in his 27th Cup start.
It may seem like déjà vu, but we're racing at Pocono on a Monday for a second time this season. Coverage of the race will resume tomorrow at 10:30 a.m. on NBCSN and at 10:45 on MRN Radio and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio. The green flag is scheduled to drop at 11:07.

Aric Almirola says he's in favor of a mechanism that forces cars to run no faster than pit road speed on pit road.

Jeff Gordon says he "will be here as long as they need me" for Dale Earnhardt Jr. Speaking in his weekly media availability at Pocono Raceway, the substitute driver of the No. 88 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet was asked how long he's prepared to fill in for Earnhardt and if there's a plan in place for next week at Watkins Glen International.
