Stenhouse Jr. on racing at Pocono:
“Pocono has been a tough track for me and my team. Pocono is very unique because all three corners are distinct. Earlier this year the race came down to fuel mileage and we were able to save enough fuel to earn a 15th-place finish so hopefully we can improve on that finish this time around and gain some more points in the standings.”
Nick Sandler on racing at Pocono:
“All three turns at Pocono are unique and affect your car differently which can be really challenging but I always look forward to racing here. This race usually comes down to fuel mileage which is what we saw in June. Track position is key so we will do what we can to keep our RPP Ford up near the front and hopefully leave Pocono with a solid finish and have a good points day.”
