Texas II: David Ragan preview

Ragan on racing at Texas Motor Speedway: "Texas is an extremely fast track and has a lot of dedicated fans who come out to watch our race. It's really tight coming off of turn two to the outside wall, and turns three and four are really smooth.

Ragan on racing at Texas Motor Speedway:

"Texas is an extremely fast track and has a lot of dedicated fans who come out to watch our race. 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. We've got the Boys and Girls Clubs of America on our UPS Ford this weekend and we really want to get a good run for them."

Crew chief Jimmy Fennig on racing at Texas Motor Speedway:

"We had a strong run going last time we were at Texas, but debris on the track ruined our chance at a good finish. Texas is a fast track and David has had some good runs there in the Cup car in the past. Our UPS Ford has a different look to it this weekend with the Boys and Girls Club, so hopefully we can get a good finish for them."
