It’s been a wild ride so far this season but now comes a track that goes by “No Limits” Texas and is known to be one of the fastest 1.5-mile tracks on the schedule. Texas Motor Speedway opened in 1996 as a Quad-Oval layout, meaning the front stretch has two turns in it, and it had banking of 24 degrees in all four turns. However, in 2017 the track was repaved and reconfigured so that now Turns 1 & 2 have 20 degrees of banking while Turns 3 & 4 are still tilted at 24 degrees.

Because of the repave just four races ago, the second racing groove hasn’t really come in yet which may make passing a bit more challenging than in race prior to the repave. That being said, the aero package that’s in place this week is the same one that was used...
