Edwards quotes on the Pocono 400

“Pocono is a big, fast and difficult race track. It’s difficult because it takes every part of your car and team working perfectly to win there. We’ve got two victories and those were days when everything was going right. You have to have a great engine, great pit crew, great strategy and fuel mileage; you have to have the car setup perfectly. It’s a really difficult race track. We’ve also had troubles there and with the new pavement, we’ve yet to come out and have a dominant race at Pocono.”

“We feel that our qualifying at Indy was really good, and Pocono is similar to Indy in a number of ways so we’re hoping we can get the pole there. The first half of the race at Indy we were really strong and we just struggled on one restart. We’re hoping we can take the strong run we had during the first half of the race at Indy and run that way the whole day at Pocono. We have not been as fast as we need to be for the last couple of months and I think every Ford is coming to Pocono with one thing in mind and that’s a victory. It’d be nice for Fastenal to get that victory. It’d be great to get those extra bonus points headed towards the stretch before the chase starts. At the end of the day it’s a fun race track so hopefully we can come out of there with a smile.”
