From the Cockpit:
Brandon Jones: “We are coming off a rough weekend at Talladega, but our 19 Toyota Service Centers team is resilient. I will be racing a doubleheader weekend running in the Truck and Xfinity Series; running the No. 51 Menards/DuPont Air Filtration Tundra for Kyle Busch Motorsports. There is a reason they call Pocono Raceway the Tricky Triangle. The racetrack is very unique, since there are three very distinct corners. In Turn 1, you’re carrying a lot of speed before you get there, but it also has the most banking. Turn 2 always gets crazy since the banking is less and you’re trying not to lift. Then you have Turn 3 which is very long and wide. I have spent multiple days in the TRD simulator to prepare for both the Truck and Xfinity races here at Pocono Raceway. I am excited about running the truck race and I plan on gaining some insight that will help carry into the Xfinity Series race and put our Toyota Service Centers Supra in victory lane.”
TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
