Stenhouse Jr. on racing at Pocono:
“Pocono has been a struggle for us in the past. After the race in June, we came back and identified some things that we feel should help us this weekend. Pocono is unique because all three turns are very different and challenging. I’m looking forward to this weekend and hopefully we can leave with a solid finish.”
