Yates Racing and Roush-Fenway Racing lead the way in victories at Texas.

Of the fifteen races held at Texas Motor Speedway eight have come with the driver behind the wheel of a Ford.  Elliott Sadler and Dale Jarrett each have a win behind the wheel of a Yates car.  Carl Edwards has two wins for Roush and is the only multiple winner for the Blue Oval Boys.

Texas is the only track in the Chase that has given an advantage to Ford teams.  If Carl Edwards is going to make a run at Jimmy Johnson, he has to make a move at Texas.  He has done what he must do at Atlanta and it do any good because Johnson was able to mount a comeback after early race misfortune.  Cousin Carl needs to replicate his Atlanta finish and hope that Johnson has some real problems at Texas.

Texas has the potential for a big one like crash.  The speeds turned there are close to Atlanta and with a less than perfect track, bad things can happen in a furry.

Look for Edwards to mount a great fight at Texas.  He has history on his side, at least as far as car make is concerned.
