ALEX KENNEDY ON TEXAS MOTOR SPEEDWAY
"I'm looking forward to making another start in the Nationwide Series and getting behind the wheel of Baker Curb Racing's No. 27 at Texas. Three of my four starts in the Nationwide Series this season came on road courses. I think that starting out mainly on the road courses has really helped me learn a lot about these cars. I've learned what the cars do under acceleration, light braking, and heavy braking, and about the weight transfer in the corners. The only oval I've been on in the Nationwide Series was Gateway; Texas will definitely be a lot different. I'll use the practice session on Friday to get comfortable with the car on a bigger oval and see what I can get out of the car. I ran the ARCA race at Texas this year and I think that experience will really help me this weekend. I know that Greg Biffle was fast in the spring race at Texas, so the team will have some good notes to work with. My goal is to keep my nose clean early in the race and put the No. 27 National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund Ford Fusion in a position at end the day to come away with a solid finish!"
CREW CHIEF JOHN REESE ON TEXAS MOTOR SPEEDWAY
"We're looking forward to Alex's first race in the No. 27. He's shown some promise in his first four races this season and we look forward to a solid finish this weekend. We came from the back to finish seventh with Greg Biffle at Texas in the spring. We'll unload with a similar setup for Alex in practice on Friday and make adjustments as needed to fit his style. I'm really proud of how far our mile-and-a-half program has come this year. We worked really hard in the off-season and spent a lot of time in the wind tunnel trying to find a good balance between drag and downforce. Our body hanger, Will Jones at Speedway Fabrication, has also really been a very integral part of our improvements this season."
