Windows 10 400
Pocono Raceway, Long Pond, Pa.
Brett Moffitt | No. 34 A&W All American Food Ford
“Going back to each of these tracks a second time will really help shorten the learning curve for me. I think at the first Pocono race, we actually ran pretty good. So, that will definitely help going back and we’ll be in a better position from the start.
“We’ll be promoting National Root Beer Float Day for A&W at Pocono. If you go to an A&W on August 6, you can ask for a free root beer float. And they just ask that you make a donation to the Wounded Warrior Project as a way to pay it forward. It’s a cool and easy thing to do.
JUST THE FACTS: Sunday’s Windows 10 400 will be Moffitt’s second Sprint Cup start at Pocono Raceway … The No. 34 Ford will promote National Root Beer Float Day (August 6) for A&W All American Food during the race weekend.
Cole Whitt | No. 35 MDS Transport Ford
“I think the biggest difference from the first Pocono race to the second is that everyone learns a lot from the first race. And every time we come back, we tend to be a lot faster, and you see the field a little bit tighter. So, the racing changes a little from one race to the next.
“If they grind the bumps in Turn 2, I think it will just pick up that corner and make it faster. But, I like the bumps. It gives the track character. It gives you something as a driver to drive around and set up differently.”
JUST THE FACTS: Whitt has three prior Sprint Cup starts at Pocono Raceway … His best finish is 21st (2014) … MDS Transport returns as primary sponsor of the No. 35 Ford.
David Gilliland | No. 38 Love’s Travel Stops Ford
“Every time we go to Pocono for the second time, you feel like you just left. But the temperature’s different and the track dries different. But I think this time it will be different because I think they’re going to do something with the whoops in the tunnel turn. So, that will make it different. But we’ll still be shifting, and I like that. I think we learned a lot from the first Pocono race that we’ll take back and apply to our Love’s Travel Stops Ford and be better this weekend.”
JUST THE FACTS: Gilliland has 17 Sprint Cup starts at the “Tricky Triangle” … He has two top-20 finishes at the 2.5-mile triangular track … His best finish is 16th (2008) … Love’s Travel Stops returns as primary sponsor of the No. 38 … Gilliland will participate in a Youth Autograph Session for Pocono campers 14 and under on Friday from 3 to 3:30 p.m. at the Infield Block Party Stage.
