 From the Cockpit:
Matt Kenseth: “Texas is always one of my favorite stops on the circuit because it’s a great race track and we always have such great fan support out there as well. You never know what’s going to happen at any of these remaining tracks on the schedule for the year, but the bottom line is that we need to run well at all of them in order to stay in this. Up until last year, Texas was always one of my best race tracks statistically, but it’s a fun track and really challenging which I enjoy about it.”

From the Pit Box:
Jason Ratcliff:
“Texas is one of Matt’s (Kenseth) favorite tracks, and we’ve been pretty good there together the last three races. The race at Texas earlier this year was a bit of a struggle, but we were still getting used to the whole new rules package. I feel that we’ll be much better heading back there this weekend, and our 1.5-mile track program has been much improved in this second half of the season. I think the biggest difference between the two races at Texas this year is going to be us having much better race cars and set-ups than we did for the first race.”
