Jamie Squire/Getty Images(LONG POND, Pa.) — Dale Earnhardt Jr. survived a multi-car crash on lap 117 and then went ahead on the final restart to take home the checkered flag at Pocono Raceway on Sunday.
Earnhardt Jr. completed the Pocono season sweep with the victory and was followed by a late charging Kevin Harvick.
Earnhardt credited the hard work by his team and crew chief Steve Letarte during the last restart.
“We had a fast car all day,” Earnhardt said. “Steve’s strategy was perfect at the end. I don’t know if anyone knew what was going on there, but it was pretty awesome.”
Earnhardt won his third race of the season, which is the most since he won six times back in 2004.
Denny Hamlin last completed the Pocono sweep back in 2006.
Joey Logano, Clint Bowyer, and Greg Biffle rounded out the top five.

Geoff Burke/Getty Images for NASCAR(INDIANAPOLIS) — Kevin Harvick won the pole for Sunday’s Brickyard 400 on Saturday.
Harvick was followed by Jeff Gordon, and Brad Keselowski for the top three spots.
“I think that we certainly look at all the Hendrick cars and the Stewart-Haas cars … and Penske, to me, is the team to beat outside of what we have,” Gordon said. “I’m pretty sure all those groups have their best stuff here.”
Keselowski and Jimmie Johnson have three wins this season.
“When you think you really understand what’s going on, you never know what somebody else has in their hand — much like if you were playing a game of poker,” Keselowski said. “We think that we have the two strongest hands with Penske and Hendrick, and certainly that’s been the case to this date in the season, but you just don’t know what’s out there.”
Gordon is the points leader and has one win this season.
“To be on the front row, 20 years after my first win, I get excited about that,” Gordon said.
Indiana native Ryan Newman won last year at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Jeff Zelevansky/NASCAR via Getty Images(BROOKLYN, Mich.) — Kevin Harvick took home the pole for Sunday’s Sprint Cup series race at Michigan.
Harvick’s pole-winning speed of 204.557 mph was the fastest qualifying speed since Bill Elliot in 1987.
“This is one of those racetracks where you’re running fast, but you really can’t put it all in perspective, I guess, until you hit something,” Harvick said. “It’s so wide, it’s so fast and so smooth, but you don’t really get that huge sensation of speed.”
Sprint Cup points leader Jeff Gordon was the second fastest on Friday and was followed by Dale Earnhardt Jr.
“This format has obviously been good for me to kind of, I guess, creep up on it as you go through the sessions,” Harvick said. “A fast car really solves a lot of problems.”
Harvick enjoys racing at Michigan.
“Michigan’s been fast for a long time. How fast is too fast?” Harvick said. “The cars will slow down a tremendous amount when we get them in race trim and you get them in a pack, and it’s going to be quite a bit hotter on Sunday. They’ll slow down. Qualifying speeds are high. It’s just a matter of whose opinion is taken on whether it’s too fast or not.”
