Ken Schrader didn’t beat around the bush when he called his driver, Matt Tifft, after he tested at Pocono Raceway Wednesday.

"Well, did you wreck in the tunnel turn yet?" Schrader asked his 17-year-old driver. Fortunately, Tifft had the right answer for the owner of his No. 52 Federated Auto Parts Chevrolet. "I was able to tell him no," Tifft said. "That was a good thing." Tifft is making his superspeedway debut at the 2.5-mile Tricky Triangle. It’s been a quite a month for the Hinckley, Ohio, native, who is going from the half-mile short track Toledo Speedway to the 14-turn road course in New Jersey to Pocono Raceway.
