Brandon Jones: “We are heading into one of my favorite tracks on the circuit with a very special paint scheme on our Toyota Supra. Our No. 19 group takes a lot of pride being able to support the Gibbs family by running jdgibbslegacy.com on our Supra leading into Texas. Joe Gibbs Racing has always had strong cars at Texas, and it was also a really strong track for our No. 19 team last season with a stage win and good qualifying effort. Given the strong start that we’ve had this year, I am anxious to get back and try to get to victory lane. The track surface is starting to get a few bumps and really build some unique character, but it also still has a lot of grip and produces some great racing. This weekend will be dedicated to JD Gibbs and making sure his legacy lives on.”
