The 2009 Pocono 500 was the fourteenth points race of the NASCAR Sprint Cup season for 2009, and was run on Sunday, June 7, at the 2.5 miles (4.0 km) Pocono Raceway outside the hamlet of Long Pond, Pennsylvania. The race marked the first of six races in the "Summer Season" schedule for TNT, with pre-race coverage starting at 12:30 pm EDT and radio coverage over MRN (over-the-air) and Sirius XM Radio (satellite) beginning at 1 pm US EDT.
Because of an all-day rain on June 5, qualification was canceled. As a result, the field was set by the rule book.
After wrecking his primary car in the first practice Saturday, Tony Stewart was sent to the back of the field as a result of bringing out his back-up car. However, he overcame that and used the old fuel mileage strategy trick (as many races in Long Pond usually do) to become the first owner/driver to win since Ricky Rudd won in September of 1998 at Martinsville Speedway. Geoff Bodine was the last owner driver to win at Pocono Raceway. Kevin Harvick made his 300th start in this race, finishing in 24th position.
