JASON KELLER ON TEXAS

"Texas is a tough mile and a half track but I'm confident that we will rebound after a disappointing finish in Bristol. Kimberly-Clark, our primary sponsor, is headquartered in nearby Irving so a strong finish would mean a lot to our entire team.

"I'm excited about the chance to tour the Kimberly-Clark mill in Paris on Friday and getting the opportunity to meet all the hard-working employees who support me everyday."
