Holster your weapons, take your bee-noc-yulars off the Mexican border for just a minute, and put some ribs on the grill, 'cause we Texas now!
Where we racin?
Texas Motor Speedway. A 1.5 miler with 24 degree banking. But more importantly, home to Hawg Heavan's famous Bacon Cotton Candy.
I'll repeat that.
Amazingly there has only ever been one famous person to come from Texas. And he doesn't even come from Texas!
"Uhh, milk. bread..."
We are racing tonite!
Miguel Paludo already went fastest in first practice, and Dr Kes, Professional Therapist fastest in final practice.
The WinStar World Casino 350K (250 miles) starts at approx 8:49pmET
Back after a couple of weeks hiatus, It's pretty much a two-horse race. Austin Dillon leads Sam Hornish by 8 points.
Interestingly, RCR is throwing Ty Dillon into a car, presumably to help brother Austin win the championship, while Penske Racing is throwing Brad Keselowski into a car, also presumably to help Austin win the championship,
Look up practice and qualifying times yourself, but I will tell you that we are racing Saturday approx 3:49pmET.
And that Kyle Larson wins.
Business as usual.
Seriously, this could be a cracking race.
