From the Cockpit:
Carl Edwards:
“We’re going to Pocono for the second time. It’s a very unique racetrack, but hopefully we can use some of the stuff we learned at Indy and apply it there. Two really long straightaways, three different corners. It’s a really fun racetrack when everything’s going well. Restarts are hugely important just like they were last week at Indy, so we’ll work on that and try to get another victory. We’ve got STANLEY on board again. They’ve been an amazing partner. We want to get them to victory lane.”

From the Pit Box:
Dave Rogers
: “Other than Daytona, Pocono is the first second race at a given venue in the season. It’s time to put our notebook to good use and expand on the things that we learned the first time around. We had decent speed at Pocono one and feel we learned some things this past weekend at Indy. I’m excited to get back to the track and see if we can put it all together.”
