IndyCar Quotes:
Ryan Briscoe (No. 5)

“I’m optimistic for a strong showing in the No. 5 Arrow Electronics car for Pocono. It’s a fun and technical track, and I’m hoping our strong form on previous ovals will translate into a good result this weekend.”
James Jakes (No. 7)
“It’s always amazing to drive an Indy car around Pocono. Turn one is unlike anything out there in motorsport. You can really feel the speed of the other cars. I haven’t been to Pocono Raceway since 2013 so I’m looking forward to it. It’s another short schedule this weekend so it’s important for us to roll the No. 7 MediaTech Oculus car off the truck well.”
