What do you like about racing at Richmond International Raceway?
"We haven't had the best of luck there in the past, but in the last few races we've started to improve on our finishes. In the fall race last year we took home a fifth-place finish, so that's a good thing to build on for this season. Richmond is a fun place to race and a great short track. The great part about racing on a Saturday night at Richmond is the sparks as our cars clip the asphalt, glowing brake rotors and the fans just seem to get into it a lot more."
