Quotes:

Elliott Sadler, driver No. 1 OneMain Financial team

“My OneMain Financial team had a great day of practice. We were at the top of the leaderboard early on and made good adjustments all day to find the handling we think we’ll need for tomorrow. We want to qualify well to maximize our stage points, and race for the win at the end. We have our eye on the prize, which is advancing to Homestead as part of the final four.”

Michael Annett, driver No. 5 Pilot Flying J team

“Travis Mack (crew chief) and the guys brought a pretty fast Pilot Flying J Chevy this weekend to Texas. I felt very comfortable during practice and we were able to improve upon it even more with some additional adjustments. I think we have a great shot at getting a solid top-10 finish tomorrow.”

Justin Allgaier, driver No. 7 Suave Men team

“We didn’t quite have the balance we were looking for in first practice so we took some time and made some great adjustments that got our Suave Men Chevy a lot closer to where we needed it to be in final practice. Texas is an important race with us currently being below the cutoff line for the Championship 4. We need to have a strong run tomorrow so we can be in a good position heading to Phoenix.”

Tyler Reddick, driver No. 9 BurgerFi team

“I want to thank all my guys for their hard work today during both practices with our BurgerFi Chevrolet. We made some good changes and have a game plan of what we need to do heading into tomorrow. I’m looking forward to seeing what we can do and coming away with another solid run.”
