“It was nice to have a little break, but I think we are all ready to get back to racing this weekend at Texas (Motor Speedway). I get to be back in the Xfinity car this weekend too, so it will be fun to have lots of track time. That really helps the weekend go by fast, because you stay so busy. We have had couple of decent runs at the 1.5-mile tracks so far, we just need to be more consistent and start scoring some stage points. Texas would be a good place to get that turned around. This is a fast track and pretty challenging. Can’t wait to get back to the track.”
