Since seven-time NASCAR Cup Series champion, Jimmie Johnson, let everyone know he’s leaving Hendrick Motorsports at the close of this season, there’s been a lot of speculation about who will ultimately drive the No. 48 Chevrolet. There are several not-so viable candidates and several quite possible ones. Given the youth and inexperience that currently occupies the secure teams at the organization, there is a very real chance that team owners Rick Hendrick and Jeff Gordon will look for a more seasoned driver to provide mentorship to their otherwise young driver lineup.

Harvick and Hamlin Win Pocono Doubleheader in the NASCAR Cup Series Pocono Organics 325 and the Pocono 350 at Pocono Raceway on June 27, 28, 2020.
NASCAR told fans in 2019 that Pocono Raceway would play host for a doubleheader weekend of NASCAR Cup Series racing in 2020. On Saturday and Sunday, they ran two races on the “Tricky Triangle” at the 2.5-mile track. Pocono Raceway is the only track on the schedule with just three corners. Each corner is very different, making it tough for teams to find the right balance in their cars.
Denny Hamlin wins at Pocono Raceway in the NASCAR Cup Series Pocono 350 on Sunday afternoon in the second race of a doubleheader weekend for the series.
Denny Hamlin turned the tables on Kevin Harvick on Sunday at Pocono Raceway.
Staying out on old tires and building a lead while Harvick battled traffic late in the Pocono 350, Hamlin won the second race of the historic NASCAR Cup Series doubleheader by 3.068 seconds over Harvick, reversing the finishing order of the two drivers from a day earlier.
