Pocono Raceway Race Quote:

“I’m really excited to get back at it this weekend at Pocono. We’re riding a lot of momentum after last week’s finish at Eldora. And now we’ve added Rick (Ren) into the mix as crew chief. Rick is one of the best all-time and gives us a huge advantage moving forward. The knowledge and leadership he possess will make an immediate impact on our team. I’m looking forward to working with him and benefitting from all his knowledge.” Austin Wayne Self
