Kimmel Looks to Bring Ansell's Home Crowd to Victory Lane at Pocono

MOORESVILLE, N.C. (June 2, 2010)- While the ARCA Racing Series presented by RE/MAX and Menards rolls into Pocono Raceway for the 50th time, Kimmel looks to make a milestone of his own, bringing Ansell into Victory Lane in front of their home crowd. With the Ansell Headquarters only a short two-hour drive away, the stands will be packed with fans cheering Kimmel on to a fourth victory at the 2.5-mile track.

Pocono Raceway is not like any other track on the ARCA Racing Series schedule. Known as the "tricky triangle," Pocono Raceway has three distinct turns set to challenge drivers. Kimmel knows the secret to taming the triangular track, with three victories, three poles and 17 top-five finishes, he is no stranger to success at Pocono Raceway.

"I really like Pocono," stated Kimmel. "It's so different, and it's a change from your typical mile-and-a-half race track that we run so many times. Making the car handle well there is very important, as well as having a lot of power. We have Roush Yates motors with us, so we should have a lot power. I enjoy going back to Pocono every year. If we have a good handling car, good track position and good pit stops, we should be set for an exciting race."
