DRIVER MICHAEL MCDOWELL:

“We need to keep building momentum on our season and keep proving that we can be up front and contend for race wins. We’ve had some good runs in the past at Texas. We’re still showing top-10 and top-five speed and feel like we can be a top-10 threat at each mile-and-a-half track.”

CREW CHIEF TRAVIS PETERSON:

“We have had good speed to start this season, we just need to execute better. Texas is a really fast track and one we ran at last fall, so hopefully we can show speed again and put together a solid weekend.”
