Kenseth on racing at Texas Motor Speedway:

“Texas Motor Speedway is a track I really enjoy racing at and have been fortunate enough to have put together some successful races at as well. To me, it is a track that’s more about real racing and making sure that you have a car that handles better than the rest of the guys, so that you’re the fastest car around the track every lap. Earlier this season, we got a flat tire that forced us to finish mid-pack, but our goal is to race hard and get the best finishes we can in order to finish our season strong for the Crown Royal Black team.”

Crew chief Jimmy Fennig on racing at Texas Motor Speedway:

“I’m looking forward to heading out to Texas this weekend because it’s really a great place to race at. After spending the last two weeks racing on a short track and a superspeedway, it will be nice to get back to racing with our intermediate track program. Matt has achieved a lot of success at Texas and our goal is to keep up with the adjustments we need, have fast pit stops, and get the best result we can on Sunday for our team.”
