The O'Reilly Auto Parts Challenge is a NASCAR Nationwide Series stock car race that takes place at Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth, Texas. The race came about from the results of the Ferko lawsuit in 2004. With Darlington Raceway forced to forfeit its Southern 500 weekend as a result of the lawsuit, TMS gained a second weekend on the schedule for Sprint Cup Series and Nationwide Series racing.

The 2008 race was won by Kyle Busch, breaking Kevin Harvick's string of three consecutive wins in this race.
