Nadeau's Thoughts on Pocono Raceway:

"All of the drivers talk about how unique Pocono is. The track has three totally different turns. It's really hard to set up a car to be good in all three. "Turn one is very fast and a little banked. Turn two is just a very fast kink on the backstretch, but it can screw you up going into turn three if you aren't fast. Turn three is a very flat turn, a lot like a short track. If you're not going fast, it will really hurt you going into the front straight, which is almost a mile long. "It's a very unusual track, but it's also a very fun track."
