Houston, We Don’t Have a Problem

Roush Fenway has earned nine NSCS victories at Texas, dating back to the inaugural event in 1997. Former drivers Burton, Martin, Matt Kenseth and Carl Edwards, along with current driver Greg Biffle, have captured the checkered flag in the Lonestar State.  


‘08 Sweep

Edwards swept the 2008 NSCS races for Roush Fenway at Texas, leading a total of 335 laps in the two events. He is one of only two drivers to win both NSCS events at Texas in the same year.



Four drivers have won for Roush Fenway across multiple NASCAR platforms at Texas; Martin (1 NSCS, 3 XFINITY), Edwards (3 Cup, 2 XFINITY), Kenseth (2 NSCS, 3 XFINITY) and Biffle (2 NSCS, 1 Truck).


Tale of the Tape

Roush Fenway has started 120 NSCS races at Texas, recording a total of nine victories, 38 top-five finishes, 59 top-10 finishes, an average finish of 14.8 and has led 2,502 laps. Biffle earned Roush Fenway’s most recent victory at Texas in the April 2012 event.


Friday Night Lights

Roush Fenway has earned eight victories, 26 top-five finishes, 43 top-10 finishes and an average finish of 13.2 at Texas in the XFINITY Series. Roush Fenway won three of the first four races at the 1.5-mile oval and looks to make it nine overall on Friday evening.
