The Trick To The Triangle | Carl Edwards Pocono Advance

Edwards on Pocono:

“Pocono is a blast to drive. It's a two and a half mile track, tons of speed, three different corners. It's almost like a road course in that every lap you have to do a lot of different things to get your car to go around the track. From a driver's standpoint, Pocono's a lot of fun. We've got two wins there. We've got the Fastenal Ford this weekend.  We didn't have the best showing at the Brickyard, but we've got some things that we've been working on.  We've been trying to make a lot of progress as a group and I'm excited to go to Pocono with two wins because now we can take what we've learned at Pocono, our Michigan test and Indy and we can apply those things that we've learned. We can also try some new things, which I'm really excited about. So we're gonna focus on qualifying Friday and hopefully get a good starting spot and battle it out. We've got six more weeks to race just for wins and for fun before it gets serious in the Chase.”
