Ragan on racing at Texas Motor Speedway:

"Texas is one of my favorite tracks. It's a very fast track and racing in front of all the fans there is a lot of fun. Texas has a lot of dedicated fans who come out to watch the race there and it's always good to see that kind of support. We've had some good runs there, but not great finishes. The Roush cars generally run well there and our goal will be to continue that this weekend."

Crew chief Donnie Wingo on racing at Texas Motor Speedway:

"Texas is a fast track and it always seems as if the cars get real tight off of turn two. The tightness off of turn two is something you usually battle all race and the race always seems to come down to fuel mileage at the end. Texas has always been a good track for the Roush cars, so hopefully we can continue that tradition this weekend."J
