On the Texas Motor Speedway:
“We’ll be in Texas two weeks in a row for the NASCAR CRAFTSMAN Truck Series. I am really happy to be going back to an intermediate track this week. The No. 02 Chevrolet Silverado RST had a lot of speed at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, and so should lend itself to be quick this weekend at the Texas Motor Speedway. Our Young’s Motorsports Chevrolet Silverado RST will be sporting a new but still familiar paint scheme with returning partner America’s Auto Auction. We would love to have a great showing for the Texas-based company.”
