From the Cockpit:
Carl Edwards:
”Alright, Pocono! We head there with the same outlook as last week at Dover. We want to try some new things and we want to swing for the fences and have some fun. It’s a good track and has been good to me. We have had some wins there and have run really well at the track a number of times. With my win a couple weeks ago I can enjoy the restarts a little more, they are crazy. We are going to have four or five-wide down in turn 1 and turn 2 on those restarts. It will be fun to be aggressive and not worry as much. My ARRIS guys have been working real hard and as a group our cars have been getting better. We had a tough race in Dover, but hopefully, we can come back and demonstrate some progress. It’s a big enough and fast enough track to give us an opportunity to practice some things that could be used somewhere else like Indy. So it should be fun.”
