What has been your key to being successful at Texas? "You have to have a good truck. We've been fortunate to be able to get good trucks that will run fast and run fast for a long period of time. I think the race track suits my style, a little bit of get up on the wheel and drive hard every lap. He who lets off the least goes the fastest and I think we're pretty good at that, getting this thing to roll the center and stay in the throttle good. When you come to somewhere that you've had a lot of success you kind of have a little different attitude. When we go to Texas, we know we have a legitimate opportunity to win because we've done so well here. There is a little bit of swagger in our step so to speak when we go to Texas."
