Pocono 400 preview

For racing fans in the area, this is the weekend that they look forward to maybe more than any other all year.

The Sprint Cup Series is heading to the Tricky Triangle for the Party In the Poconos 400.

The race will be held on Sunday afternoon when they're expected to have much better weather than yesterday.

Rains wiped out the qualifying runs on Friday, which means Jimmie Johnson will get the pole for Sunday's race by default, since he is the overall points leader.

Tony Stewart brings the momentum into the race; he picked up his first win of the year at the Monster Mile down in Dover last weekend.

And then, of course all eyes will be on Danica Patrick, who will be running her first Sprint Cup race ever at Pocono.
