Ross Chastain on Racing at Pocono: “I’m excited to get to Pocono,” said Chastain. “This is such a fun and unique race track, and I enjoy the challenge that it presents. We had a solid race at Kentucky that moved us into the top-20 in points, but our sights are set on trying to win more races before the playoffs start. I can’t thank Acurlite and BAJA enough for coming on board this weekend. I’m thrilled they’ll be joining us at the track, and I’m hoping we show them a good time.”
Making the Playoffs: A fourth-place finish for the No. 45 team at Kentucky Speedway advanced Chastain into 18th-place in the driver point standings.
Chastain has two victories this season, with one counting towards playoff eligibility. Chastain must stay in the top-20 in NGOTS point standings within the next three races in order to remain eligible to compete for the championship.
