NASCAR heads to Texas this weekend.  Friday night qualifying found Martin Truex, Jr.  setting fast time, winning the pole for Saturday night’s Samsung Mobile 500 at Texas Motor Speedway.  Truex turned a qualifying speedway of 190.369 mph in his Michael Watrip-owned Toyota.  Last year’s winner, Matt Kenseth will start second.

Kenseth has led more laps than anybody at Texas plus he has two wins and 13 top ten finishes.  Team owner Jack Roush has been very successful at Texas Motor Speedway.  Points leader Greg Biffle has had seven consecutive second-place finishes.  Teammate Carl Edwards is the only three time Sprint Cup Series winner at the track.

Kenseth also finally got to celebrate his Daytona 500 win this week.  Due to the rain delay and rescheduling of the race in February, the 500 champion victory celebration was postponed to this past Wednesday.  So 44 days after his victory, Kenseth got to celebrate the win with his car owner Jack Roush and crew chief Jimmy Fennig.
