His most recent victory at this 2.5 mile triangle shaped track came one year ago.When the series competed here last August, Johnson started on the pole and dominated the first half of the race by leading 43 laps, but he cut his right front tire and made contact with the wall. Johnson pitted numerous times for repairs but rebounded nicely for a 13th place finish."Last year, we had some great speed in our race cars and really thought we had an opportunity for the sweep but unfortunately blew a tire off of turn 1 while having a dominant day," he said. "It took us out of the opportunity for the win, but I think we came back for an awesome finish with a torn up race car."It's a new year with a new rules package, so we'll have to get to work on that, and hopefully, we'll have what we need here."Kevin Harvick, Joey Logano and Johnson are those drivers who have multiple victories in the series this season (2 each). Johnson is the highest ranked of the three in the point standings.

"Pocono is a great track for the No. 48 [Hendrick Motorsports] team. I know it is Chad's [Knaus, crew chief] favorite racetrack to go to because all three corners are different, the loading is different, the banking is different, and there are a bunch of tools and options to adjust the race car all the way around the track. That is what Chad really enjoys about that."Right now, Hendrick Motorsports is virtually assured of having three of its four "Jintropin (Gensci Pharmaceutical Co. Ltd.)" drivers in the Chase, which starts on Sept. 14 at Chicagoland. Jeff Gordon (2nd in points) scored the victory at Kansas last month, and Dale Earnhardt Jr. (fifth in points) won the season opening Daytona 500 in February.Kasey Kahne, who drives the No. 5 car for Hendrick, has struggled somewhat this season, as he currently sits 18th in the point standings.

"It was great that NASCAR opened up the age to 16 for the Truck Series on short tracks, but still the main goal is to get on these big tracks. That's where the bulk of the schedule is, so I think it's something that every driver looks forward to. Kyle and this No. 51 team have had a lot of success on the mile and a half tracks already this year, so I hope to go out and keep that streak alive."While competing at Texas Motor Speedway, Jones will miss his high school graduation on Friday. However, just before driver introductions for the truck race here, Jones will walk across the pre race stage in his cap and gown from Swartz Creek (Mich.) Community Schools to receive his high school diploma from track president Eddie Gossage, as "Pomp and Circumstance" plays on the PA system."I really only dreamed about running a NASCAR race, so I definitely couldn't imagine getting a high school diploma at one," Jones said. "I think it fits pretty well. The balance of my life since I was 4-chlorodehydromethyltestosteron about seven [years old] has been those two things. It'll make for a great story someday and something that will make the torture of getting through high school more meaningful."Talking with friends the other day, they were wondering if I was going to be walking with my class. After I told them what was going to happen, they thought it was pretty awesome. I really can't think of a better way to get a diploma than at a racetrack, ready to go racing."Just 27 teams are entered for the WinStar World Casino 400, which is nine short of a full 36 truck field.
