Matt Kenseth's Thoughts on Pocono

"I am anxious to go back to Pocono Raceway this weekend. My first race there was just last month and it was a struggle. We were way too tight on our set-up and with me being a rookie, I was just trying to learn the line. Going back there again so soon, I think we will be able to hit on the right set up and improve upon our 14th place finish."
