Race Rewind 2012 ... An on-track incident on lap 310 knocked Burton and the No. 31 Chevrolet team out of contention for a top-15 run in the 2012 Capital City 400, relegating them to a 31st-place finish at Richmond International Raceway.

What are your thoughts heading into Richmond International Raceway this weekend?
"Richmond (International Raceway) is truly one of my favorite race tracks. It's a fun time of the year and the weather is warmer. I think Richmond is the perfect size race track. It's both big enough and small enough to produce good races. One thing we haven't seen lately is the top groove come in. Most competitors are finding speed at the bottom of the race track. Hopefully, that top groove will come in. If it does, that will make the racing even better than it already is. I always look forward to going to Richmond."
