QUOTES
 

"The Sam Hunt Racing guys brought a bad fast Toyota GR Supra to Bristol last weekend, and I"m excited to see how fast this week's machine is. We had a solid chance at a top-10 run in Bristol before we received a speeding penalty on pit road on the last caution, and I feel like we have a really solid opportunity for a top-10 or top-5 again this weekend. I'm looking forward to having YesWay and Allsup's on board with ForeverLawn. This race wouldn't be possible without them."

-- Jeffrey Earnhardt, Driver of the No. 26 Forever Toyota GR Supra

 

"I think our entire building is excited to build off the momentum we created at Bristol. The 12th-place finish didn’t quite reflect the race and speed our team had, and left everyone hungry for more going to Texas. Jeffrey has always gotten around [Texas Motor Speedway] well, and I have confidence we will bring a fast piece to the Lone Star State."

 

-- Sam Hunt, Owner of Sam Hunt Racing
