“We did our job at Kansas with a fourth-place finish. We
had great strategy to be in position late in the race and had
a chance to do even better, but we got stalled out behind
another car on the last restart. We’ve been great on 1.5-
mile tracks this year, and Texas is the last one we’ll see
before Homestead. We have to be in contention again late
in the race, score as many stage points as we can to have a
chance at racing for a championship. That’s what we’re
going to do this weekend at Texas. I am proud as well to be
running our ‘Thank You Veterans’ Pilot Flying J paint
scheme these final three races.”
