Mike Bliss on Pocono Raceway ... "Pocono is a challenging track for drivers and crews alike. Each turn at Pocono Raceway is different so when you get the racecar to handle well in one turn, it doesn't necessarily handle well in the other two. Whichever turn we find we can gain the most ground in is the one we will focus our efforts on during practice as we prepare for qualifying on Friday."
