Texas native Bobby Labonte thinks racing at Texas Motor Speedway is great because:

(Labonte) "There's multiple grooves and tires give up, and I think that leads to good racing and excitement for the fans.  So always looking forward to going back there."

Brad Keselowski is hoping for better luck this season at Texas.

(Keselowski) "We might not of got the win that we wanted last fall, but I feel like we can get it done this Spring."

For Dale Earnhardt, Jr., Texas holds a special place in his heart because:

(Earnhardt, Jr.) "Just the fact that you got a win here, won your first race here, that's what makes it so special."

Former NASCAR champion Dale Jarrett and racing magnate Bruton Smith are among the five new nominees for next year's Hall of Fame class.

And President Barack Obama honors Sprint Cup champ Brad Keselowski next week at the White House for his achievements on the track and his efforts to give back to the community.  Keselowski will meet with wounded troops during his visit.
