Smith Looking Forward To Texas Night Race Chevrolet

“Personally, I’m pumped to get back to the track with our TaxSlayer team. Running under the lights at Texas will definitely be exciting. We haven’t raced in a couple weeks, but our guys have still been busy. They’ve been putting in a lot of extra work at the shop and we have a couple new cars to prove their efforts. “We were able to test at Texas last week and it went well for us. We took away a lot of valuable information from that test. It was great to have Kasey and Brad there. Anytime you have teammates around to bounce ideas off and talk to, it’s only going to benefit the team.”
