What are your thoughts about going to Pocono this weekend?
“I’m looking forward to this weekend. We definitely have some unfinished business at Pocono after last year. Hopefully we’re able to unload strong on Saturday and carry that through the weekend. It would mean a lot to be able to get some redemption and to get that seventh win at Pocono to break the tie with Jeff (Gordon).”
