Ross Chastain on Racing at Texas: “Texas is a special place for our team owner Al, so there’s definitely a little added pressure to perform well for him and all of his employees out here this week,” said Chastain.
“My Niece Motorsports team has been very fast all year, and we have a tall order ahead of us to get both in the top-20 in points and win a race before the playoffs start. But that’s a mountain we’re willing to climb.”
Chastain on Pursuing Truck Points: “After much consideration and many conversations, I’ve decided to pursue championship points in the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series, effective immediately,” said Chastain.
“This shift will allow me to be in the truck race this weekend in Texas, and I’m grateful to everyone at Niece Motorsports for giving me this opportunity.
“I’m thankful to everyone at Johnny Davis Motorsports and Kaulig Racing for their efforts this year. I will continue to run races for each organization where sponsorship for 2019 has been solidified.
“I know this is the best decision for me at this time and am thankful for everyone who has and will continue to support me moving forward into 2019 and beyond.”
Chastain at Texas: Chastain has six NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series (NGOTS) starts at Texas Motor Speedway. In those six starts he has earned one top-10 finish, two top-15 finishes and four top-20 finishes.
Earlier this season at Texas Motor Speedway, Chastain had a strong truck, running up front for much of the race. However, the No. 45 Chevrolet had a tire issue with a few laps remaining and had to limp to the finish. Even with the late-race issue, Chastain still managed a top-10 finish; a seventh-place result.
In addition, Chastain has made nine NASCAR XFINITY Series starts at the 1.5-mile track, with his best finish of 11th coming last fall.
Chastain also has three Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series starts at Texas Motor Speedway.
