Driver Scott Lagasse Jr. on the First Four Races with CJM:

"A lot has happened over the course of the last month and we're working every weekend to find a balance. We've had some changes with our crew chief situation and we're grateful that Mike (Sibley) has stepped in to help us out. It's a new deal and we're just trying to run competitively every weekend, gain some respect out on the race track and keep the fenders on the car."

Driver Scott Lagasse Jr. on Racing at Texas:

"Texas has a great vibe to it. The atmosphere is great and the track is a lot of fun to race on. It's very similar to Lowe's Motor Speedway and I'm hoping to produce the same results. We're bringing the same chassis so I feel like we'll have a certain comfort level going into this weekend."
