What did you learn in your first Richmond Nationwide Series race that you can apply to your return?
"The center of the corner is where we struggled last time. There was one run in the spring where we had strong center speed and forward drive, we ended up driving up to seventh. I know what that feel was, so I'll to aim for that same feel in practice and hope to keep that in the race."

Is there different feeling you have now that you're heading back tracks for a second time?
"You have that first layer of nerves knocked off because you've already been there and know what to expect. Competition will be just as tough, so I hope to be fast enough to not get in anyone's way that's running for a championship, but at the same time I have get myself the best finish possible."
