Ricky Stenhouse on Texas: “I’m looking forward to Texas this weekend. We won their last year in the Nationwide series so hopefully we can get another cowboy hat. We have a test session on Thursday to work on getting our Best Buy Ford dialed in. After last weekend, I am looking to get a top-10 finish.”
Scott Graves on Texas: “We have been working on our mile-and-a-half program since Vegas. Roush Fenway as an organization has been strong at Texas so we will look at all of our past notes. We will try to get our Best Buy Ford handling to Ricky’s liking and hopefully leave Texas with our first top-10 finish of the year.”
