From the Cockpit:
Matt Kenseth: “Texas has always been one of my best tracks on the circuit historically. It’s been awhile since I’ve run a Nationwide Series car there however, but I’m really looking to getting back into our No. 18 Reser’s Toyota this weekend. I haven’t been in that No. 18 since Phoenix, but I’m looking forward to seeing if we can do a little better than we did that weekend. Texas has a lot of great fans and I enjoy the challenge of the race track so I’m looking ahead to a great weekend.”
From the Pit Box:
Matt Lucas: “We’re definitely excited to get back to the track because it feels like it’s been forever since we raced at Phoenix. We had a good showing at Phoenix, but I’m hoping to improve upon that this weekend in Texas. Texas has been a good place for the No. 18 car in the past so there is a bit of a legacy there. We have a handful of things that we’d like to try with it being our first intermediate track this year with Matt (Kenseth), so this weekend will help set the precedent for what we do at other tracks this year. We have a lot of learning to do, but we’re hoping to capitalize on Matt’s experience at Texas.”
