Shane Hmiel about Texas Motor Speedway:

"I really like Texas Motor Speedway. It seems like the track gets better and better every time we go back to race there. I ran third in the Busch race at Texas in 2003, and I'm really excited about taking the WINFUEL Chevrolet there this year. We're taking chassis #06, which is my favorite car, and I really think we should be good all weekend. Hopefully we will unload fast and it will give us an opportunity to try some things during practice. This car has been good to us this year, and my WINFUEL guys have worked really hard to turn it around and get it ready to race at Texas."

Hmiel about participating in the NASCAR Busch Series Texas Race Advance last week:

"We had a really good day in Texas last Thursday. Justin Labonte and I had the opportunity to come out the track early to take some media members for rides around the track. We also stopped by to be guests on the Pugs & Kelly radio show, which was the most fun I've had doing radio. Finally, we went out to the American Airlines arena to sign autographs at the NEXTEL Experience and to see the game. Texas Motor Speedway and NASCAR really did a good job of putting together fun things to promote the upcoming race."

Shane Hmiel about the incident that occurred at Bristol Motor Speedway:

"I'm looking forward to getting back in the #32 WINFUEL Chevy this weekend at Texas. I would like to put the incident that occurred at Bristol behind us so we can all go forward in a positive manner. My team has filed an appeal with NASCAR regarding the penalties that were assessed and we will make the best presentation that we can. Like we said before, whatever the decision is, we will respect it and move on with the rest of our season."
