Pocono "News" and Notes

--Yep, we're back at Pocono again after only five weeks.  They have a quicker turnaround than a superhero movie and its gritty reboot.

--Kurt Busch is looking to run the final IndyCar race of the year in preparation for next year's Indy 500.  Why does Kurt seem to announce anytime he does ANYTHING racing/charity related?

--Figuring that having little weird guys on his car is good luck, Ryan Newman plans to run a "Terror of TinyTown" paint scheme on Sunday.  You know, for good-luck.

--Wait--Joey Logano's running the Nationwide Series race at Watkins Glen?  Well its about TIME Nascar put some more Cup drivers in the lower series!  THIS is what they need to boost their sagging ratings!

--The looming debut of "Fox Sports 1" will be the sponsor of Joey Coulter's truck in this week (and next week's) Truck Series races.  Well, no conflict of interest there!
