Today's NASCAR Number is 18.

18: The number of races team owner Jack Roush has won at Texas Motor Speedway in the NASCAR Sprint Cup and Nationwide Series combined. Roush Fenway Racing drivers have won nine of the 24 events in each series, starting with a weekend sweep in 1997, when Mark Martin won the Nationwide race and Jeff Burton followed a day later with a victory in Cup. On Thursday night in the Speedway Club at Texas, Martin ushered Roush, his former boss and fast friend, into the Texas Motorsports Hall of Fame.
