Quote:

“I really like racing at Pocono. It’s a fun and challenging track that really keeps you on your toes with the three different corners. We were really fast in practice here last year in the truck and I’m very confident we can unload that same way again this year in the Xfinity car. Hopefully we can keep the positive momentum going after last week in Charlotte and get our Switch Chevrolet in the front on Saturday. I’m really looking forward to seeing what we can do.”
