Now we're hated that Texas Motor Speedway and we first started racing there in 1990. It's a very unpredictable race we had sixteen races there with thirteen different winners. Only two Robertson won more than once there Jeff Burton has won -- wise. In Carl Edwards -- wonder -- it back Carl Edwards swept the races back in 2008. And what can we say about Texas the -- unpredictable. There's only three worked -- his era. Fast. Fast in really bad let's all work actually go back to last year a year ago. I don't think you'd get -- really conception about how fast that place is easily read. Like Michael McDowell anti while I think it showed you if nothing have to play it. And I'm like one of its sister track Atlanta Motor Speedway which we were just a few weeks ago. In the races being does not slow down that much cases that makes a little bit sharper. And we would leave at short tracks we go to Obama -- speedway Texas Motor Speedway. It brings back all the elements of -- -- to get the victory lane there. Unlike the short track where more best strategy it is more about handling. Now we're back and aero. Handling your cargo that -- -- -- wide sweeping corner and -- strategy can certainly play a role as -- but the biggest thing. Horse power. In this race is absolutely and -- got by near nailed the entire time they're they're healthy under. In the pace doesn't slow them like Gagne timlin face that slowdown that means the so -- -- light years Texas Motor Speedway this week Ian. Well the group that struggled at short tracks routs in white got -- those guys will be back but he'll there that. At this fixing races we inner -- in what they have seven million now what I'll look back is more than. And run good this year at places like Atlanta Motor Speedway -- and the mountain racetrack churches who ran well at Texas last year because that we know. It's a constant evolution and you look at our sport. I gotta believe that and car were good he just dominated Atlanta. I think he'll be up. I think -- brother Kyle Busch he'll be awfully good. And outside may be one of the sleepers a guy and always run well the amount happily for. We -- Atlanta keep a close watch -- Brian -- remember one point it looked like he was possibly. Run and a -- car down at Atlanta late in the race. In and I think we know the Hendrick car run good there yet Gordon ran well at Atlanta Johnson -- run well level where it's also attracted -- -- -- runs will act. He won his very first Nationwide Series race there in 1998. And any followed -- -- I would in his very first NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race that are in his rookie season at 2000. Now one final comment in one your -- you know or go back to mark. I've got to say I was a little disappointed. In Darrel -- -- I thought about it this morning. A little disappointed in the fact it was not more emotion. Out of the man that lifts a booming laugh and that the most laughs at Martinsville. In Canada the bump and run but only about Jimmie Johnson you certainly are brown acted any Hamlin handled -- out there are national. But I would have definitely thought dean Hammond as bad as the that we -- that he would have been pretty upset. In May he would have let Jimmy Johnson know about it -- who them.
