2014 Richmond: Cale Conley NASCAR Nationwide Race Preview

This Week's OKUMA Chevrolet Camaro at Richmond International Raceway ... Cale Conley will pilot chassis No. 107 in Friday evening's NASCAR Nationwide Series event at Richmond International Raceway. This Richard Childress Racing-prepared Chevrolet saw track action four times in 2013 with Dakoda Armstrong, Paul Menard, Ryan Gifford and Kevin Harvick behind the wheel. This chassis earned two third-place finishes (Michigan International Speedway and Dover International Speedway) and three top-10 finishes. Additionally, this workhorse from the RCR stable has been raced on six separate occasions in 2012 earning one pole award (Paul Menard, Texas Motor Speedway), four top-fives and six top-10 finishes.

Back in the Driver's Seat ... On Friday evening, Conley will make his first competitive laps at RIR in the Nationwide Series. The 21-year-old driver has two K&N East Pro Series starts to his credit at the famed Virginia short track. Conley continues his stint with RCR as driver of the No. 33 Okuma Chevrolet Camaro having started inside the top-12 each time.

About OKUMA ...

The company is the industry's only single-source provider, with the CNC machine, drive, motors, encoders, spindle and CNC control all manufactured by Okuma.

Last Time Behind the Wheel ... Conley qualified 11th for the 147-lap affair at Darlington Raceway, but a late-race incident relegated the 21-year-old RCR driver to a 32nd-place finish.

What are your thoughts going to a track where you've competed at before?
"I'm excited for Richmond (International Raceway). Bristol (Motor Speedway) and Darlington (Raceway) were pretty difficult tracks, so it'll be nice to head to a track that's not one of the toughest to get around. It is very technical, especially in K&N, and I'm sure it'll be that way in the Nationwide car. I feel like you can get by without your stress level at an all-time high. I'm looking forward to going into it with a different approach than the first two starts, with a more relaxed and focused feel of getting used to this car at a track where I've competed before."

What are your goals For Richmond?
"Personally, I need to redeem myself after Darlington. I was pretty disappointed in myself and how that shook out. A top-10 is doable; I don't see why we can't run in the top-five with Nick (Harrison, crew chief) and the crew. I think we can make it happen Friday night."
