What is it like to race at Richmond under the lights?
"I'm excited for Richmond, it's been a good track for us. I feel like the last two races we've led over 300 laps, we've contended for the win in both of them and finished in the top five. Obviously, that's a place where we can go to victory lane. I feel confident with our setup, the setup we bring there and my confidence at the track. I'm excited to get there and try to finish it off."

Do you keep a mental scorecard on tracks and where you might be due?
"Yeah, as a driver for whatever reason, you go to every single race track and you try and expect to have a fast car and want to win. No matter what, you always have places where you know have been better to you and fit your driving style better and Richmond is one of those for me. "

Does Richmond race a lot different in the night then in the day?
"Yeah, Richmond is a cool place. It's similar to Atlanta where the tires fall off a lot and you really have to manage your tires. You race the race track, as weird as that sounds. It's you versus the race track, instead of you versus your competitors. The night race means speeds pick up a little bit, but you still have tire fall off and wear and you have to manage your tires."
