TUNE IN – FS1, PRN, SiriusXM Channel 90 at 1:30 p.m. (EST)

Sam Mayer: “Looking forward to heading to Texas this weekend, especially coming off the momentum we have from Martinsville. We have run really well at Texas in the past and I know these guys are continuing to build fast race cars, so we just need to have a finish to show for that. Hopefully we can gain one more spot on last week’s finish and put this No. 1 Carolina Carports Chevrolet in Victory Lane.”

Justin Allgaier: “Texas has been a really strong track for us since the repave. We came so close here in the fall of bringing home the win and I know that we will have that same speed again this weekend. Jim (Pohlman, crew chief) and all the guys on this BRANDT Professional Agriculture team are ready to go and we will give it all we have to bring home that Dash4Cash prize and the checkered flag.”

Sammy Smith: “We got another top-10 finish this past weekend at our first short track race of the year and I really felt like we had a top-five competitive car or better. We’ll keep digging and take our No. 8 Pilot Flying J Salted Caramel Toffee Cold Brew Chevrolet to Texas to try and bring home the checkered flag and cowboy hat.”

Brandon Jones: “We had the speed last weekend, but we weren’t able to get the finish we wanted. This No. 9 team is working hard to make sure we continue bringing fast cars to the track and I believe we will be able to run up front this weekend and battle for the win.”
