What are your thoughts on Richmond International Raceway?
"The key for us is to get forward drive coming off of Turn 4 and to get the Quicken Loans Chevrolet to turn in the center. If you get it turning in the center, it helps the forward drive. Richmond is a fun, little short track. It's got challenges, but if you get those right, you'll be in contention for the win."

How does Richmond compare to the other short tracks we've visited so far this season?
"It's entirely a track all its own. Lap times fall off huge there. It has a different shape in comparison to all the others. It used to be similar to Phoenix International Raceway, but since the new asphalt was put down in Phoenix, you can't even compare them."

How do you rate the first third of the regular season with your new RCR team?
"We have had much better performances than our results. Our results have been because of tire failures or some kind of mechanical issue that has bit us. In the end, our RCR-prepared Chevrolets have been really strong and the 31 crew has done an exceptional job. We just need to keep up what we are doing and the results will show. I mean, for all that's happened I'm pleased to be sitting in ninth place."
