Brandon Jones: “We had an exceptionally strong car in Charlotte last weekend, which definitely builds the momentum our No. 19 team feels heading into the tricky triangle at Pocono Raceway. The race track is very unique, since there are three very different corners. I actually consider Pocono to be more like a road course than an oval. In turn 1, you’re carrying the most speed before you get there, but it also has the most banking. Turn 2 always scares you because the banking is less, but you’re trying not to lift. Turn 3 is very long and wide, so having patience is key to that corner. I’ve come very close to winning at Pocono in an ARCA car, so I’m hoping that I’ll be able to pull from that experience and drive our Juniper Networks Supra to victory lane.”
