What do you need to do to be successful this weekend at Texas?

“Texas is typically pretty tough to pass on, so I feel like we will need to have a good qualifying spot and then just execute on pit road. My guys have done an amazing job on pit road this season, so we’ll definitely lean on them a little bit to help gain or just maintain track position and then we’ll need to have the right strategy to be up front at the end.”
