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 and the points battle. 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.” Seeing the power that Hendrick Motorsports has picked up, has it been a mutual situation where you’ve both been benefiting from the advances that they’re making right now?“Yeah, I think Chevrolet, as a whole, is working better together than they ever have in the past. Obviously, it’s good to see Hendrick Motorsports running well. As far as from an engine standpoint, I know it’s good to see the ECR power running well each and every weekend. Chevrolet and Rick Hendrick, himself, have been adamant in helping us with whatever we need. So, it’s been nice working with all the teams, especially Rick and all the guys at Hendrick. I think it’s only going to make us better in the future working together and especially with the Next Gen car. We’re just doing everything we can to keep Chevrolet out front.”

What are the keys to success for a doubleheader weekend?“It’s important to take each race one at a time on a doubleheader weekend and not look too far ahead. We did not have a great doubleheader weekend last year at Pocono Raceway, so I’m looking for some redemption this time around. It’s going to be important to keep the front of the car rotating through all three corners for both races since Pocono is so flat. That can be a challenge since you get tighter the longer you run. Dirty air makes it really tough to get around here too, so being able to manage that well will be vital to having a good two races this weekend.” This week you’ll be carrying the Kalahari Resorts and Convention Center colors on your No. 8 Chevrolet. Are you looking forward to some more time at their resort?“I’m very excited for this weekend’s stay at Kalahari’s Resorts and Convention Center at Pocono, and I know my team is too. We got to stay at their new Round Rock facility in Texas during the COTA race weekend, and it’s just incredible what they do with these resorts. My teammate, Austin Dillon, and myself had a lot of fun at Tom Foolery’s in Texas and had a friendly competition going with the arcade games in there. My girlfriend, Alexa, and son Beau had a great time in the water park that weekend too. So, I’m excited to be headed back to their Pocono location this weekend with a little more time on my hands to join them in the water park and enjoy all the resort has to offer. It’s such a great family atmosphere. Todd Nelson, the owner of Kalahari, does a fantastic job, and I’m excited to catch up with him again and have him out to the track as well.”

What is your outlook for this weekend?“Pocono Raceway is one of my strongest tracks personally. I’ve had good speed and success there in the past. In my ARCA debut at Pocono back in 2016, which was also my first race at the Tricky Triangle, I led a lot of laps and finished inside the top-10. Last season when our Richard Childress Racing team went to Pocono, we led laps in the No. 21 car and finished fourth. This weekend, we are going back with almost the same setup in our No. 2 Chevrolet Camaro, so I feel good overall about our chances on Sunday. It always helps to have another great looking Crosley Furniture Camaro to drive, and we will look to rock and roll once again in the Pocono mountains. We are even staying at the Kalahari Resorts, which makes the time away from home enjoyable and kicks off the summer fun.”
