Pastrana on racing at Texas Motor Speedway:
“I’m really excited to race at Texas Motor Speedway. I ran a Global RallyCross event there last year, and love the facility. All the drivers seem to love the track. I’ve driven in a school car a few years ago and also had the privilege of getting a ride-along with Mario Andretti in an Indycar. I can’t wait to get out there and race my Nationwide car. It’s the second 1.5-mile track we’ve been to this year. We had a good run in Vegas, so I’m hoping to step it up this weekend in Texas.”
