Reed on Pocono
“Pocono is a tough track and last year we had a decent practice, but spun out in qualifying then started the race with radio problems. We worked all day to get the radio problems resolved then ended up wrecking halfway through the race. Nothing good happened a year ago there. We just need to go there and clear our minds of what happened in the past. We have a new aero package, so things will be a lot different. I am looking forward to a lot of things being different, because what happened before didn’t work. I know we can have a good run there, we just need to get there and clean everything up from a year ago.”
