You're going to be doing double duty in Pocono. With the XFINITY and Cup cars being so different there, what do you expect to learn on Saturday that you can use for Sunday?
"I like having the opportunity to race in the XFINITY Series. I have a lot of fun out there. It's a low-pressure environment to just go out and race. The rules packages for the cars at Pocono are very different, but you always pick up something for the next day. The XFINITY cars draft really well, and there's a lot of competition. So even though the cars are setup differently in the two series, I always find that I learn more to perform better the next day, even if it's just how to hit my line better through the turns."
