Grant Enfinger Quote:
This is your second time at Pocono this season, how do you feel about returning?
“I am really excited about heading back to Pocono (Raceway) this weekend. In June, the GMS Racing and Allegiant Travel team built a really fast car and brought home a solid second-place finish at the “Tricky Triangle.” Pocono is a big, fast and mean track. It almost feels like each turn you are at a different track; a mixture between an intermediate track and a short track. Then there’s the tunnel turn, its like nothing I have ever encountered at another track before.”
