Jack Hawksworth qualified twelfth at Pocono Raceway on Saturday, and admitted that it was a good effort from the team to be able to do so well considering they were not able to maximise their running during the recent test at the same circuit.

The AJ Foyt Racing driver has experienced a tough season to date, and is still seeking his first top ten finish of the year, but felt he had a strong qualifying performance at the Tricky Triangle, and is looking to convert that into a decent result for the #41 squad.

“Pretty good qualifying considering we didn’t get much running here at the test,” said Hawksworth. “I think we did a good job this morning to get the car where we needed it to be.

“We did a qualifying sim and the car felt pretty good. We stayed the same for qualifying, not anticipating what the track was going to do but knowing if we kept the starting platform we should be OK and we did. It worked out OK since we qualified in the top half.

“Now we just have to do the work tonight to get the car dialled in for traffic and drive a strong race tomorrow for ABC Supply.”
