Ashton Lewis, Jr. Notes & Quotes

"Texas Motor Speedway reminds me the most of Atlanta Motor Speedway, we are going there with a very similar setup in the car. Since they paved it last year it is a lot faster and smoother than Atlanta seems to be, but they have the same characteristics."

"In talking to some of the guys that tested there recently, it seems to have lost a little bit of the grip that it had last year. When the grip changes so does your speed, so you have to adjust the setup a little bit for that."

"We finished 11th here in 2001 and would have been higher, but we ran out of tires at the end of the race. I have always gotten around there real well. We had a bit of a disappointing qualifying run last year, but we think we know what we were missing the boat on, so we will fix that for this year and try to qualify and run up front."

"We are running a 2003 body style here on a car that we have not run yet this year. It's car number 05, which has always been my favorite car, so maybe it will change our luck around for this year. "
