JR Motorsports drivers looking forward to Pocono

Michael Annett: “Bigger tracks are good for me, and I’ve always liked Pocono. We won at Daytona and earned the pole at Talladega, so this is the next opportunity we have to continue that success this season on these larger tracks. The communication among the team is really good right now and we are hitting the goals we established, to qualify well, earn stage points and get top-five and top-10 finishes. I’m looking forward to keeping that consistency going into the summer and on toward the Playoffs.”

Justin Allgaier: “I love racing at Pocono. I was fortunate enough to win there in the ARCA Series. Jason Burdett and our No. 7 Klondike team have done a really good job there in the past. I really like racing at tracks that are unique and aren’t necessarily your standard shape. You really have to think through all three corners. To be good in Turn 1, you’re going to struggle a little in Turn 2 and Turn 3 and vice versa. Figuring which corner you’re willing to give up a little bit of speed in order to gain the speed on the other corners is so important. I’m excited for this race. I think it’s going to be a lot of fun.”–

Ryan Preece: “I’m really looking forward to hopping back in the No. 8 Planters Chevrolet this weekend at Pocono Raceway. Pocono is a track that I don’t have a lot of experience at, and I’m definitely ready to get on track and learn more about the details of each turn. Pocono is a place where it’s hard to know what to expect ahead of time. All three of the turns are so different, and I’m very fortunate to have the opportunity to race for JR Motorsports and contribute to the success of the No. 8 team so far this season.”

Noah Gragson: “I really like racing at Pocono. It’s a fun and challenging track that really keeps you on your toes with the three different corners. We were really fast in practice here last year in the truck and I’m very confident we can unload that same way again this year in the Xfinity car. Hopefully we can keep the positive momentum going after last week in Charlotte and get our Switch Chevrolet in the front on Saturday. I’m really looking forward to seeing what we can do.”
