  • “We’re looking forward to getting to Texas this week. I feel pretty good about how we’ve run at the other 1.5.-mile tracks this year. We definitely want to qualify better than we have to put ourselves up front early in the race and to have a better pit selection. Our teammates have also been really fast at these tracks so far, so I expect us to all be strong and have an opportunity on Sunday.”
