Ricky Stenhouse Jr. on Texas:

“Texas is one of my favorite tracks. The past two weekends have been tough for our team but I think we are all looking forward to getting to Texas and being competitive. We had a solid run at Las Vegas earlier in the year, another mile-and-a-half track,  so I am really looking forward to this weekend and seeing the new big screen.”

Mike Kelley on Texas:

“I am looking forward to Texas after two rough weekends. Ricky and I had success there in the Nationwide series so we hope to build on that this weekend. We’ve been strong at mile-and-a-half tracks this year so hopefully we can rebound this weekend and have a solid top-10 finish.”
