Pocono Raceway will be a big challenge for NASCAR drivers. Kyle Larson is optimistic before the race considering that he had successful performances in the previous few times. Next Gen cars are something completely different.
We will see how they react to the new track. “I always enjoy going to Pocono (Raceway) – it’s a track that for some reason suits my driving style I’ve had some good runs there and was close to winning there last year, so I’m excited to go back.
It should be interesting in the Next Gen car. I don’t know how many times we’ll be downshifting. In the previous car, this was really the only oval we’d downshift at, so it may not be too different,” Kyle Larson said, as quoted by firstsportz.
Alex Bowman is also an optimist, given that he previously won there. “Anytime you go back to a track that you have previously won at; you have a little more confidence and Pocono (Raceway) is one of those tracks for me.
We had a great No. 48 Ally Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 last year and I know our team is doing everything they can to recreate that for me in this year’s car,” Alex Bowman said.
Alex Bowman and his team
Bowman emphasized that his team is working harder than ever.
They want to give their maximum, they want to improve every aspect. “I can’t say enough about my team and how hard they work, especially when we feel like we are not getting the results we are aiming for. Our team is so tight-knit and we all join together when we are facing a tough stretch.
I feel like Pocono is going to be a place where we can go execute a solid race and get back on track with where we want to be,” Alex Bowman added.
