Joey Coulter Quote:
“Pocono Raceway is one of the most technical and challenging tracks we go to all year, which is exactly why it is one of my favorite tracks. Also, I think having a win there helps too. I'm feeling good about our chances after all the work we have been putting into our GMS Racing intermediate trucks and the results that have come with it.”
