The first two stages of the Pocono 400 at Pocono Raceway were free of incidents, but the scanners came to life in the final segment and the chatter was caught in the week’s edition of Scan All.
On lap 126 of 160, Kyle Larson got into the back of Derrike Cope and sent him into a harmless spin. It triggered the first caution for an incident and the old adage of “cautions breed cautions” was once more reaffirmed.
“My nose should be fine,” Larson said after the contact. “I barely got him.”
“I probably should have given him the outside,” Cope responded to his spotter. “That’s why I said I was going to go down low.”
Other highlights from Scan All include:
- “32’s leaking oil bad. Tell him to pull off.” – Michael McDowell
- “Whoa. My brake pedal went straight to the floor into the tunnel for some reason.” – Matt DiBenedetto
- “Shut it off, shut it off. We’re done.” – Mike Wheeler, crew chief for Denny Hamlin.
- “Tell (Erik Jones) I’m sorry. He went to the bottom and then went to the top and I caught him. It’s my fault.” –Joey Logano
