WALLACE ON RACING AT TEXAS MOTOR SPEEDWAY:
"I am always excited to get back to Texas. The whole place has such a big atmosphere and we always get the opportunity to do fun things while we're in town. Last fall I had an awesome time introducing the Los Lonely Boys at the concert that Texas Motor Speedway had Wednesday night at the track. Eddie Gossage and the TMS staff are always coming up with exciting events for us to be part of, so we always look forward to Texas race weekends!"
WALLACE ON THE PROGRESS OF THE #22 AUTOZONE FORD FUSION RACING TEAM:
"The AutoZone Racing team went through some big changes during the off-season. The first few weeks of this season have definitely been a learning experience for all of us. I feel like we really started to turn things around in Atlanta a few weeks ago and then we finally got our first top-ten finish in Bristol. I'm looking forward to the next few weeks because we've got some really good tracks coming up. We ran strong in the spring race at Texas last year and we finished second twice last season at Nashville, so hopefully we are on the upswing with the AutoZone Ford. We've got some ground to make up in the point standings and this #22 AutoZone team is going to keep putting in the hard work to get us back on top where we belong."
