It’s an interestingly-shaped track …“Pocono is a fun, fast track, and I feel like we’ve been able to build a good notebook there so I’m excited to get there this weekend for a double-header. Good finishes will be important for us, especially with the points battle following Talladega. At Pocono Raceway, speed is definitely carried through turn two and through three to the start-finish line. I think those are the most important corners. Of course, every corner is important, but turns two and three are a little bit more important because it’s the flat end of the track.”

I’ve gotten in these Cup cars a few times on 1.5-mile tracks, and we ran a similar aero package in our Xfinity cars at Pocono a couple of years ago. The draft is a huge part of your handling. Managing your track position to avoid as much dirty air as possible is going to be very important. If we’re entering the weekend on a draw, that draw could be the very thing that dictates the first half of the Saturday race and how you’ll need to go about getting track position. With the track being so flat, it’s also important to keep the front of the car rotating through all three corners, which is a challenge since you get tighter the longer we run. With this package, that’s going to get enhanced the longer we are in dirty air. It’s going to be a dogfight on the restarts because of how valuable the air is.”

The corners are all so different. You can usually only pick two out of the three corners to really focus on. I have full confidence that Andy Street and our No. 21 Richard Childress Racing team will be able to adjust the car to what I need on each of our pit stops. I think if we can unload close to what we need we will be a contender on Sunday in our TaxSlayer Chevrolet Camaro.”
