Winners and Losers from NASCAR Sprint Cup Series at Pocono

The second half of the Sprint Cup Series regular season opened at Pocono Raceway on Sunday, with Jimmie Johnson producing one of the most dominant performances of the season so far.

Starting on the pole after qualifying was rained out, Johnson led all but 31 laps on the way to his third victory of the season. He outdrove the entire field for most of the day and outlasted charges from Ryan Newman and Dale Earnhardt Jr. as a series of late-race cautions continuously bunched up the field.

Pocono frequently foreshadows how the Cup field looks during the season's summer months. The series visits numerous large speedways, flat tracks and a pair of road courses before the Chase for the Sprint Cup begins, and Pocono handles somewhat like a combination of the three.

So whose summer looks good based on his or her results on Sunday, and who might be worrying about the coming weeks?
