QUOTES
Sterling Marlin: "We went to Pocono for two days to test following the Charlotte race but we pretty much got rained out. We ran one day and we weren't real good with the car we took so we've decided to take another for the race. We just couldn't get the car balanced right. It's a handling track, you need to handle good and have a lot of power too. You either shift once or shift twice during a lap. I like shifting once because I'm not that good at shifting. But we were trying different shifting combinations the first day of the test and different race setups mainly."
