TYLER REDDICK QUOTE:

What is the trickiest part about getting around Pocono Raceway?

"For me, it has got the be the dirty air. I've gotten in these Cup cars a few times on 1.5-mile tracks, and we ran a similar aero package in our Xfinity cars at Pocono a couple of years ago. The draft is a huge part of your handling. Managing your track position to avoid as much dirty air as possible is going to be very important. If we're entering the weekend on a draw, that draw could be the very thing that dictates the first half of the Saturday race and how you'll need to go about getting track position. With the track being so flat, it's also important to keep the front of the car rotating through all three corners, which is a challenge since you get tighter the longer we run. With this package, that's going to get enhanced the longer we are in dirty air. It's going to be a dogfight on the restarts because of how valuable the air is."
