From the Cockpit

“I consider Auto Club Speedway to be one of the most difficult tracks on the schedule. To come out of that weekend with a decent finish in our No. 19 Menards Toyota, it definitely gives us some momentum going into this weekend’s race at Texas Motor Speedway. Over the last two weeks, I was able to enjoy some downtime. I spent some time with my cousin (a soldier in the Army) and at Myrtle Beach with my girlfriend and her family. It was a great break, but I’m ready to get back at it. We’ll be in the TRD simulator again this week to get ready for Texas. I love going to Texas Motor Speedway, especially since the repave. It’s such a fast and smooth track that really lends itself to my driving style. I think that’s why we normally run so well there. The smooth surface helps keep some separation between cars, so we’re usually able to have clean passing. I wouldn’t predict many cautions. I’m actually expecting a race with a lot of long green flag runs.” – Brandon Jones

From the Pitbox

“With the first five races under our belt and a solid start to the season Brandon, myself and the whole 19 team are ready to get back racing in Texas. Our team has had a lot of success in Texas the past several races and we are really excited about the Toyota Camry we are bringing so we feel confident that we will be prepared to take the next step towards our 2018 goals as a team and hopefully break through with our first top-five of the year.” – Chris Gabehart
