The track has been especially good for Harvick who is a 5-five-winner in the series at there. In addition, he hasn’t been worse than 3rd place in his three Nationwide starts this season. Earnhardt Jr. has also had 1 win in each the Sprint Cup and Nationwide series on the track

"Our company has been performing really well so far this season and it's heading in a great direction.Knowing we are bringing four cars that all have an opportunity to win is really cool for me and shows how hard everyone at JR Motorsports is working. Hopefully we can put one of our cars in Victory Lane Friday night," Earnhardt stated.

"It certainly isn't commonplace in this sport to have a two week break,” commented Smith, noting that the series last race was March 22 at Auto Club Speedway. “but it was a positive for our team. "We've been clicking off top-10s since Phoenix, but we all know that isn't going to be good enough. We can do much better. Now is our time to regroup and refocus. Texas is a great track where we've had some success. The goal is to get back to running up front and and winning races."
