QUOTE WORTHY 

Wallace on racing at Texas:

“Texas is a great track. I’m ready to get there after having two weeks off and build off of our top-three finish in California. We ran pretty well there in this race last year and I’m confident we can improve on that this Friday night with our Fastenal Ford.”
