TAILGATER OF THE WEEK:

Mike Sudosky snatched Tailgater of the Week honors at Pocono Raceway on Sunday. Sudosky has been visiting the track for 25 years and his favorite driver is Dale Earnhardt Jr. His friends mentioned that Bobby Labonte was their favorite driver and talked about him sweeping the races in 1999.

"We've been coming here for 25 years with my cousins and friends from the same area," Sudosky said. "I've had this bus for four or five years and just bring it to Pocono. There's plenty of room inside and we have a good time. We grill out too. We enjoy grilling steaks and ribs."

Congratulations to Sudosky from Pittston Township, Pennsylvania!
