Stenhouse, Jr. on racing at Texas Motor Speedway:
“Racing under the lights at Texas always brings excitement. You can race the entire track from top to bottom and the track gets really fast at night. This is NOS Energy Drink’s final paint out of the year so it would be great to get them into victory lane. We are down to the final three races so I have to do my job inside the car, and my No. 6 team has to execute on pit-road. It would be awesome to sweep both Nationwide races at Texas this year.”
Crew chief Mike Kelley on racing at Texas Motor Speedway:
“This is the same chassis that we won with at Chicagoland. We don’t get to practice at night here so we will have to make the according adjustments during the race based on our notes. Going into these final three races, we have to be mistake free on the track and pit-road. I feel confident that if we can execute on pit-road and make the needed changes to our NOS Energy Drink Ford that we can add the black cowboy hat to our collection.”
