The Duck Commander 500 at Texas Motor Speedway is the seventh race on the
2014 Sprint Cup Series schedule.
Construction of Texas Motor Speedway began in 1995. This 1.5-mile racetrack
has 24 degrees of banking in all four turns and 5 degrees of banking on the
front and back straightaways. The length of the frontstretch is 2,250 feet,
and the backstretch measures 1,330 feet.
The last three spring races at this track have been held on Saturday night.
This year's event there is scheduled for Sunday afternoon since the national
semifinals of the 2014 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament (Final Four) is taking
place on Saturday at nearby AT&T Stadium in Arlington.
There have been 26 Sprint Cup races held at Texas, including one event per
season from 1997-2004 and two each year since then. The series will return
there the first weekend in November for the eighth race in the Chase for the
Sprint Cup championship.
Jeff Burton won the inaugural Cup Series race at Texas on April 6, 1997.
Jeff Gordon, Bobby Labonte, Mark Martin and Burton are those drivers who have
competed in each of the previous 26 races at Texas. Labonte, Martin and Burton
are not competing in this year's spring event at this track.
Carl Edwards and Jimmie Johnson share the record for most victories at Texas
with three each. Johnson has won the last two fall races there. Edwards scored
a season-sweep at this track in 2008 but has not won a Sprint Cup event there
Matt Kenseth leads all drivers with 13 top-five finishes at Texas. Kenseth and
Johnson have the most top-10s there with 16 each.
Jack Roush has the most car owner wins at Texas with nine, followed by Rick
Hendrick with five and Joe Gibbs with four.
The race winner at Texas has started from the pole position three times: Kasey
Kahne (April 2006), Johnson (November 2012) and Kyle Busch (April 2013).
The closest margin of victory in a Sprint Cup race at Texas occurred in April
2004 when Elliott Sadler beat Kahne to the finish line by just 0.028 seconds.
Three drivers on the entry list for this weekend's race made their Sprint Cup
debuts at Texas: Brad Keselowski (Nov. 2, 2008), Trevor Bayne (Nov. 7, 2010)
and Parker Kligerman (Nov. 3, 2013).
Dale Earnhardt Jr. is the only driver entered in this race that scored his
first career Cup victory at Texas (April 2, 2000). Burton's first win in the
series came there as well (1997 inaugural race).
Two drivers who are entered in this race claimed their maiden poles at this
track: Martin Truex Jr. (November 2007) and David Ragan (April 2011).
Ryan Newman holds the record as the youngest driver to win a race at Texas.
Newman took the checkered flag there on March 30, 2003 when he was 25 years, 3
months and 22 days old. When Dale Jarrett was 44 years, 4 months and 6 days
old, he became the oldest driver to win at this track on April 1, 2001.
The next race is the April 12 Bojangles Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway.
Matt Kenseth won last year's race there.
