Robb Brent Looking For Similar Success At Pocono Raceway
LONG POND, Pennsylvania (July 29, 2009) - - ARCA RE/MAX Series veteran Robb Brent returns to Pocono Raceway this weekend looking to grab his first top-10 finish of the second half of the season in Saturday's Pennsylvania 200.
More importantly, the Shelby Township, Michigan native hopes to use the 13th race of the season to move into the top-10 in the ARCA RE/MAX Series championship chase. Last weekend, Brent posted a solid 15th race at Berlin Raceway further improving the driver's qualifications on some of ARCA's most unique tracks.
Now, the series returns to Pocono Raceway, a familiar place for Brent who has scored top-10 finishes in all three of his ARCA RE/MAX Series starts at the 2.5-mile oval. In May, Brent qualified 17th but quickly powered to the front and captured a solid seventh place finish.
In 11 races this year, the Justin Allgaier Motorsports (JAM) the team has posted four top-10 finishes but the team heads back to the Long Pond racetrack looking for their first top-five finish of the season.
"Pocono Raceway has been real good to me and I'm heading back with the same mentality that we can produce another strong run for the No. 36 Orchard Chrysler Dodge Jeep Dodge Charger," said Brent, who is negotiating a full ARCA schedule in-between earning a College degree. "We've been able to nail down top-10 finishes, now it's time to start delivering top-five runs. We're definitely capable of it; we just need a little luck around the way to help us make it happen."
When asked why Pocono Raceway has been so good to the 22-year old driver, he answered with, "it's a track that definitely fits my driving style for sure. Pocono is a momentum track for sure and keeping that momentum going every lap helps you move through the field. I finished in the top-10 in all three races; we'll look to make it four for four Saturday afternoon."
Brent was also quick to comment on the team's number one goal of finishing inside the top-10 in the championship chase. "We're making progress and we knocked off some points last weekend at Berlin. You don't want to wish misfortune on anyone but as a team we cannot worry about, we just need to keep doing our job and our goal should be conquered without a problem."
