· Edwards at Pocono

o Edwards has two wins at Pocono in 2005 and 2008.

o Edwards has 19 Sprint Cup starts at the 2.6-mile track with an average start of 16.8 and an average finish of 14.8.

· The Car

o Primary chassis RK-921 was last run in 2014 at the first Pocono, starting in the 10th spot and finishing 41st after a crash.

o Backup chassis RK-904 was last brought to Charlotte in 2014 as the back-up car.

Edwards on Pocono:
“Pocono is a blast to drive. It's a two and a half mile track, tons of speed, three different corners. It's almost like a road course in that every lap you have to do a lot of different things to get your car to go around the track. From a driver's standpoint, Pocono's a lot of fun. We've got two wins there. We've got the Fastenal Ford this weekend. We didn't have the best showing at the Brickyard, but we've got some things that we've been working on. We've been trying to make a lot of progress as a group and I'm excited to go to Pocono with two wins because now we can take what we've learned at Pocono, our Michigan test and Indy and we can apply those things that we've learned. We can also try some new things, which I'm really excited about. So we're gonna focus on qualifying Friday and hopefully get a good starting spot and battle it out. We've got six more weeks to race just for wins and for fun before it gets serious in the Chase.”
