RACE PREVIEW:TEXAS

TEXAS MOTOR SPEEDWAY

APRIL 14th, 7:30 PM CHARLOTTE TIME FOX TV

1.5 MILES, 24 DEGREES of BANKING

It’s time for an action packed, high-banked mile and halfer and Texas Motor Speedway is just the place. Texas is very similar to Atlanta and Charlotte Motor Speedway, but unlike those tracks, this one flattens out very quickly after turn two. The wide, flat back straightaway makes for great passing. Ten of the 22 races run here were won by Fords, including both 2008 races that were won by Carl Edwards. Roush/Fenway Racing has eight team wins here making this Lone Star State track a “House of Roush”. This is the second time we’ll be seeing this race under the lights on Saturday Night.
