Tate Fogleman Pre-Race Quotes:
On Texas Motor Speedway: “Texas wasn’t exceedingly kind to me or the Young’s Motorsports team last season, so I really feel like we only have one way to go on Saturday afternoon and that is up.
“Texas is always a huge race for the Young’s Motorsports family being Texas natives and I know it makes them proud to see their trucks to be as close to the front as possible on their home turf.
“We had a lot of speed in our truck at Charlotte, so I’m optimistic we can carry that speed to a good weekend on Saturday afternoon and finally shake this monkey off our back.”
On 2021 Season: “I’m proud of everyone on this Young’s Motorsports team – even if we do not have the finishes to show for it. It does not come from a lack of effort from anyone.
“We will continue to fight. We need to put some points on the board over the next couple of races, so that’s our primary objective.”
TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
