How does Texas Motor Speedway race now versus before they did the reconfiguration and repave?

"Texas Motor Speedway is nothing like it used to be, but that's not really a bad thing. It was a lot of fun to move around on that old, worn-out surface, but now we have a new surface that has really high speeds and creates really tight on-track battles and action. It's a totally different animal now. It still puts on great racing, I just think it's not the racing fans are used to there. With the PJ1 they put down in the spring, it really opened up the second, third and even fourth lane in that compound up off the bottom groove when the balance of the cars would change. You don't see a lot of tire fall-off there, but it's similar to Kansas where you have a balance-change in your car throughout a run. You have to stay on top of that to run well, and I think moving around throughout the race will be important. The pace will be very fast this weekend with the cooler temperatures we will have there. We finished one spot short during the spring race at Texas, so we're looking forward to getting back there with our No. 2 Alsco Chevrolet and trying to finish one spot better.”
