Carl Edwards Looks For His Third Win At Pocono | Pocono Advance

Edwards on Pocono:

“I enjoy racing at Pocono, it’s been a great racetrack for me as a driver and for the No.99 team. We have two wins there. It’s a very fun racetrack for the drivers. You get to shift, there are three distinct corners, extremely high speeds, and restarts are chaotic to say the least. We have the Kellogg’s Ford Fusion this weekend and have had a lot of luck in the Kellogg’s colors. We struggled a little bit at Dover, but still we have moved up to third in points which is great. Pocono is one of those racetracks that really tests the driver, the car, and the strategy, This race can be won in a number of ways so hopefully we can put together a great race and have some fun.”
