ARIC ALMIROLA, No. 10 Smithfield Ford Mustang -- WHAT WILL WE SEE THIS WEEKEND? TANDEMS? WEIRD COMBINATION OF TANDEMS? NO TANDEMS AT ALL? “I will get back to you. I honestly don't know. I think there is a lot of speculation about what we will see."
"Well, that’s a wrap on the 2019 season. I would like to thank all of our partners, including Love’s Travel Stops for their support this year. The No. 34 Ford Mustang was a blast to drive. We had some good runs, some highs, some lows, top 5’s and top 10’s. You’re always learning and you’re always growing. Lastly, I want to thank all of my guys at Front Row Motorsports for their hard work and dedication to our program this year. Tonight didn’t go the way that we had hoped, but you’ll have races like that. I’m already looking forward to Daytona."
Roush Fenway takes two former winners at Texas Motor Speedway to the Lone Star State this weekend when the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series (MENCS) converges on the 1.5-mile oval for a Sunday afternoon 500-mile event. Newman, a 2003 Cup series winner at TMS, is coming off his 13th top-10 of 2019, while Stenhouse, a 2012 Xfinity series winner at TMS, searches for a strong run on Sunday.
After working his way inside the top-five and running comparable lap times as the leader Kevin Harvick, Ricky Stenhouse Jr. was collected in a spin on lap 52 ending his day forcing him to settle with a 40th-place finish at Texas Motor Speedway.
