Hopefully, we can keep this rolling.Truex won his third pole of the season in the Furniture Row Racing No. 78 Toyota and the 10th of his career.

Menard has just two top-10 finishes all season and showed no signs of developing into a threat for making the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship.But a crew chief switch might make the difference.Menard topped the lone practice chart in his first race weekend with crew chief Danny Stockman. RCR dumped Justin Alexander for Stockman for Menards stretch run.Stockman has won two Xfinity championships during his seven years at RCR and he and Menard worked together in that series, including a win last year at Road America.Menard made Sprint Cups championship chase last year, but stands 23rd -- and out of the playoffs -- with just six races left in the regular season.RCR as a whole, we dont like to suck, Stockman said.

Its just the way it is. I know that. Its not something Im comfortable with. ... Odds are, that if 100 people take that hit, one or two are not gonna be standing here anymore.GORDONS RUNSix-time Pocono winner Jeff Gordon qualified -- yup, 24th -- in his second race driving for the injured Dale Earnhardt Jr.Earnhardt missed his third straight race because of concussion-like symptoms and there is no timetable for his return.Gordon came out of retirement to drive Earnhardts No. 88 Chevrolet.
