Trevor Bayne on Racing at Texas: “I love Texas. Somehow we’ve always been fast there and it seems like big things happen there every time. In 2010, I got my first Cup start there. In 2011, we got our first Nationwide win. I’d love to be able to go back and get a Nationwide win there again. I love rockin’ that cowboy hat in Victory Lane.”
Bayne on getting back to the track after two weeks off: “It was a good reset button for us to be able to go test at Kansas and learn some things that hopefully we can take to Texas. We were fast in Las Vegas, and that’s kind of our Texas setup, so hopefully we can go out and lead laps and try to win a race here soon. I think we need a win to give us that kick in the butt to move us up in the standings and get us rolling for the rest of the season.”
