Ryan Blaney Wins the Pocono Mountains 125 in Overtime

Posted on: 5:25 pm, August 3, 2013, by

After a morning shower, the sun came out and the track dried off. Blue skies mean green flag racing at Pocono Raceway. This may be the Camping World Truck Series, but the 50 lap race is an all out sprint to the checkered flag.

Despite an incident in turn one on the green flag, the race went 42 laps with no issues until the caution came out for debris, then all bets were off.  Todd Bodine, who led a good portion of the race, got helped around with 5 laps to go in turn one and cut off his chances for victory.

The race eventually went into overtime but Ryan Blaney was able to hold off advances from Miguel Paludo to put himself in victory lane.

With a fast truck, a truck owner who has been here in victory lane, and a little fatherly advice, Ryan Blaney was able to take the win at Pocono.
