Buescher earns 1st Cup win

LONG POND, Pa.—Chris Buescher emerged from the fog to become a surprising winner in yesterday’s shortened Sprint Cup race at Pocono Raceway.

He is now on the verge of being in the mix for NASCAR’s championship after not finishing better than 14th all season before yesterday.

“The plan was to always make the Chase,” Buescher said. “We’re that much closer now.”
