Vickers on Texas Motor Speedway

"This is my final Nationwide Series start of the season for Braun Racing and the only thing on my mind is taking this Dollar General team to Victory Lane. Trent Owens (crew chief) and the guys have worked so hard all year and though we have come close on several occasions we just have not been able to close the deal. We are looking to change that this weekend. We have had some great success on these 1.5-mile race tracks this season and we feel that we can take what we have learned season-long and translate it into a win this weekend!"
