2022 Ross Chastain Trackhouse Racing Texas Advance

Renu joins Ross Chastain's No. 1 Chevrolet Camaro as the primary partner for Sunday's race at Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth.

The Carrollton, Texas based company is a general contractor servicing multi-family, hospitality and commercial properties.

Chastain hopes the Renu branding on his Chevrolet will bring the same result it most recently did for Trackhouse Racing teammate Daniel Suárez when he won at Sonoma (Calif.) Raceway in June.

The second year Trackhouse team, competing in its first season as a multicar team, joins Hendrick Motorsports, Penske Racing, Stewart-Haas Racing and Joe Gibbs Racing as the only teams with playoff drivers still in contention.

Chastain enters the second round of the playoffs in third place with 3,020 points, 11 points above the ninth and final transfer position after the reset post-Bristol. If he remains in the top eight or wins any of this round's three races he will advance to the next playoff round that begins Oct. 16 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Chastain owns two wins already - Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas on March 27 and Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway on April 24. The Alva, Florida native has 10 top-fives, 16 top 10s and 584 laps led throughout 29 races this season.

The Cup Series held its All Star Race at Texas Motor Speedway on May 22. Chastain's car was fast, but a spectacular, frontstretch accident on lap 48 when he hit Kyle Busch's slowing car nearly sent the No. 1 on its roof.

Chastain escaped uninjured but is obviously hoping for a better outcome Sunday.

USA Network will broadcast Sunday's Cup race at 3:30 p.m. ET.

Ross Chastain, Driver of the No. 1 Renu Chevrolet

Did you learn anything in the Sprint All-Star race that you think will be important in this Playoff race?

"In the spring we were flying in Texas. I would like to not fly as high (laughs). With the two ends being so different, you gain so much speed with the banking and you have to slow down a lot in turns 1 and 2. Keeping the balance on both ends is important. We obviously learned stuff in the All-Star race but now there is a lot more on the line."

Since its newer pavement at Texas, do you think we'll see more drastic things with the new car?

"It does actually. It has a lot of grip until you lose it, so when you do lose it you crash, or we blow tires.

"I think the whole field has gotten better with not blowing tires as easily. I don't know how long they're going to leave Texas the way it is, so it's probably time to enjoy it for what it is."
