Ragan on racing at Texas Motor Speedway:

"Texas is an extremely fast track. It's really tight coming off of turn two to the outside wall and turns three and four are really smooth. It's unique in general and makes for a really good race. There are multiple grooves to pass, so when you combine that with the speed it makes for a great race for the fans. Another great aspect of Texas is the fans. So many of them come out every time we are there, it's great to see everyone in the stands supporting us."

Crew chief Jimmy Fennig on racing at Texas Motor Speedway:

"We ran really well in the fall last year at Texas and were in the top 10 the majority of the race. This weekend we are heading to Texas with the same setup from the fall with just a few tweaks. We haven't had the best finishes lately, but David's good at these mile and a half tracks and I'm confident we can get a good finish this weekend."
