Carl Edwards on racing at Texas Motor Speedway:

"We've had great success at Texas and I love racing there. Everything is bigger in Texas -- they have a huge crowd and a huge purse. If you win you get a cowboy hat and two pistols so it doesn't get much better than that. It's a great place to race and a great place to win. At this point in the season we've got three races left to finish strong and Texas is one we feel like we have an opportunity to go get a win so this race couldn't come at a better time."

Crew chief Bob Osborne on racing at Texas Motor Speedway:

"Texas is a great track for Carl, and it really seems to suit his driving style. His record there is very impressive and I'm hoping we can add to those stats this weekend. We're taking the same car we raced at Dover which was new then and it performed quite well. It would be great to get a win before the season ends, and I think Texas is one of our best chances."

ON THE TRACK...The No. 99 team will be unloading chassis No. RK-705 at Texas this weekend. This Ford Fusion most recently raced at Dover in September where it started 10th and finished fifth. It was a new car at Dover.
