JIMMIE JOHNSON QUOTES

LOOKING AHEAD AT THE TEXAS NIGHT RACE NEXT WEEK, THERE IS A LOT OF EXCITEMENT ABOUT THAT. WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS?: "My first thought is what the hell are we doing with this weird schedule at Texas? We practice on Thursday night and all the other stuff that's going on. So I'm still trying to get my head around that (laughs). But we're excited to go back to Texas; obviously is a great spot for our circuit with a lot of great fans. Night races are always good. I hope it's warm. We have a chance where it can be awfully cold there. But I'm looking forward to going back. The Dallas/Ft. Worth area has been very supportive of NASCAR and it'll be good."
