Sounding Off – Cameron Hayley:
“Texas has been a really up and down place for me in the past. I have a had some really great runs, and I’ve also struggled a couple times. We are bringing the same Tundra we finished third with at Chicago, and I think it will be a great fit to go back that up with a win at Texas. Practice is always the toughest part about Texas in regards to practicing in the day, and racing at night. There is not a whole lot you can learn from doing this which makes it that much tougher on Eddie (Troconis, crew chief) and I when it comes down to making changes for the race. Overall, I am looking forward to Texas this weekend. It’s a home race for RIDE TV, and I’m actually going over to their headquarters on Wednesday to tour the ranch, and meet all their employees. So, hopefully we can get them a win on Friday night.”
