Bobby Labonte searches rebound

Bobby Labonte doesn't want to talk about past season. It was one of his most difficult ones, driving for four owners, and he failed to record a top-10 finish.

Instead, Labonte is concentrated on this season and has a rejuvenated energy with his new team, JTG Daugherty Racing. He opened the season with a fourth-place run at the Daytona 500, and has had a competitive car in every race since, including a 13th-place finish in Bristol, Tenn., three weeks ago.

Labonte looked to have another top-15 finish in him during the Goody's Fast Relief 500 at Martinsville Speedway on Sunday, but a five-car wreck on Lap 229 knocked him out of contention. He wound up 27th.

Labonte said he believes he can rebound this week at Texas Motor Speedway, driving the No. 47 Bush's Beans Toyota in the Samsung Mobile 500 on Saturday night.
