QUOTE WORTHY

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.”
