Behind the Wheel with Bobby Labonte:

Flog logo jpg "Pocono is a tough track to conquer. I have won there, but each time it was under different circumstances. There are three very distinct corners. You've got to be great to get around all three turns perfectly. If you get two out of three correct, you are usually doing pretty well since they are all different.

"This is our first trip to the northeast part of the country. It's always good to get up in that area and race. The fans are passionate and just love their Cup racing. It's cool because Pocono has some great folk who welcome you with open arms."

From the Box with Doug Randolph:

Flog logo jpg ""This race feels almost as long as the Coke 600 because it takes about 55 seconds to get around it. This is a big track for us. We don't race many 2.5-mile tracks that are flat like this. It's just a pretty unique track on the circuit, but it's also a fun challenge for any crew chief. Bobby has great starting and finishing averages at Pocono and you always feel good with a champion like him behind the wheel."

From the Owner, Kevin Buckler:

"This team is really working hard right now and we're looking for ways to improve. We are pulling all of our resources together to give our partners the best value possible. There are opportunities for this weekend to be a part of the team. We've proved to our current partners, such as TaxSlayer.com, and the others who have been a part of the team that we deliver great return.

"It's important for us to get some support so we can continue to grow. We're still a young team in the Sprint Cup garage, but we have experienced people working with us. Bobby has won this event three times and we feel like we have a great opportunity for partners this weekend to be a part of the team."
