TIM GEORGE JR.:

You finished in the top-10 earlier this season at Pocono. What are your thoughts on going back for the second time this season?

"I'm really stoked to get back to Pocono. It will be the fourth time I've been to this track. Last year it was perhaps my least favorite track on the entire ARCA Racing Series schedule. It is the most 'unique' oval, or more of a triangle, that I have ever raced on. It's still a tough race track, but now I love it. I think my crew chief, Gere Kennon, has figured out what I need. He has a way of getting my confidence up and helping me be consistent."
