On Texas Motor Speedway: “After our strong performance at Kansas Speedway a couple of weeks ago, I am definitely looking forward to Texas Motor Speedway this weekend with my AM Racing team.
“I feel like we took a step in the right direction with our intermediate program at Kansas and look forward to continuing to build on that this weekend. It will be hotter than usual in Texas on Saturday, so that should make for a slick race track and plenty of action.
“Hopefully, we can put a good balance underneath our No. 25 AM Technical Solutions Ford Mustang and contend for a top-10 finish or better.”
On 2023 Season:“It is a bummer that our AM Racing team is not a part of the NASCAR Xfinity Series Playoffs. We gave it our all; we just came up a little short.
“Still, we are very encouraged about our recent speed at Kansas Speedway and hope to continue to showcase that speed and strong finishes the rest of the season.
“It’s important for us to go to Texas Motor Speedway this weekend and have a good finish before taking our final off weekend of the season next weekend and setting us up for the homestretch and final five races of the season beginning at the Charlotte Motor Speedway ROVAL in early October.”
