“We know what we need to do heading into this weekend at Texas. This No. 9 team fights hard and we know how the points are looking. We just need to go out and execute to the best of our ability and make sure that we are there at the end with a chance to win. We had a really good Chevrolet here in the spring and I feel extremely confident that we will unload with that same speed for practice on Friday. I’m ready to give it everything I have to fight our way into the Championship 4.”
