Ed Carpenter Racing team owner Ed Carpenter, driver of the No.33 BitNile Chevrolet, heads to Texas Motor Speedway this weekend looking for strong start to his season. Carpenter won here in 2014 and looking ahead to the race this weekend; he commented saying:
“I am extremely motivated to get back to Texas Motor Speedway and get my season started! Texas has always been a track that I have enjoyed racing at. While the past few years haven’t gone to plan, as a team we feel like we have a good strategy this year to get our three cars back to the front and in contention for the win. It is the only oval before we get to the Indianapolis 500, so it will be a big boost to leave there with confidence in our oval off-season development!”
Rinus VeeKay is looking forward to the race this weekend, saying:
Cowboy hat and boots are ready! I am very excited for Texas and I think it’s going to be a really good weekend for us. We showed really good speed last year and thought we had tamed Texas, but things did not really go our way at the end. We looked at everything, learned from it as a team and now I feel we are more prepared than ever. It’s going to be tough and it’s going to be hard, but it’s also going to be exciting. I am confident we are going to contend for a Top 5!
Fresh from competing in the NASCAR Cup Series at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas, Conor Daly is looking forward to the PPG375 at Texas Motor Speedway this weekend, saying:
“I can’t wait to head to Texas Motor Speedway and get back to work! Texas is a track where I have had some decent runs in the past and we, as a team, are strong on superspeedways. We understand our issue from last year that kept us from a good result and it will be resolved for this year, which is nice. I am excited to get back to it and back up to the high speeds of Texas. Hopefully, all three of our BITNILE.COM cars will bring home a great result!”
