NASCAR will hit the 1.5-mile Texas Motor Speedway oval for the annual All-Star race where the champion drivers alongside a few qualified drivers will go at each other in the non-point million-dollar worth run. Multi-time winner Kyle Larson, Kevin Harvick, and co will be the drivers to watch out for in Texas, and the newfound pace shown by Toyota cars, especially in 1.5 miles, indicates a return to the top for the manufacturer.  

Kurt Busch will hit the Texas Motor Speedway on Sunday in his No:45 23X1 Racing Toyota Camry hoping to continue his winning run from Kansas riding on the momentum. The veteran will be hoping to get a second win of the season and the race will also be an important opportunity for the 23X1 Racing teams to get their pit crew and pit stops back on track as there are any points at stake this race.

Now Kurt Busch has come forth expressing his opinion on how the Kansas win momentum is increasing the confidence of the No:45 team and how buzz they are to continue the momentum.

Kurt Busch acknowledged that his hauler is like a football locker room or Collage Football locker-room of just morale, the trash talk, and the fan following their Kansas cup race win, the first of No:45, 23X1 Racing car.  He went on to say he can feel a different swagger to the team one he feels the team should be having after a win.

The hauler right now with all their crew members being here and the pit crew guys mean, it was a straight-up like a football locker room or a college football locker room of just the morale, the trash talk, the fun, and the excitement like there’s a different Swagger. You have to have that after a win,” Kurt Busch said.

Kurt Busch went on to add that they have to compartmentalize the Kansas win into what they can do on the track in the All-Star race to go all out for the million bucks. He went on to add that since there is no point to gain on Sunday every one is bouncing around readying themselves to go after the win after all who doesn’t like money.

And then you have to compartmentalize it into what can we do on track today with the cool procedures for the All-Star and then we go for the million bucks. I mean, who doesn’t love money? And we don’t have to worry about points tomorrow. And everybody’s just bouncing around like, let’s go after this,” Kurt Busch added.
