STEVE PARK: I'm actually really looking forward to this weekend. I think we have a legitimate shot at putting the Orleans Dodge back in victory lane at Texas . The Orleans Racing team has a long-standing tradition at Texas , and we want to be in a position to continue that winning tradition. We are taking the 13 truck. It is a new truck. We had a chance to test it at Vegas after the race last month, and we were really happy with the way it performed. We took it to the wind tunnel and had positive results. We are really happy with this truck and it is a great truck to take to Texas and try to win the race.
