Truex on Racing at Richmond: “Richmond is a difficult track,” said Truex. “But I’m looking forward to getting back on pavement after Bristol. I have 10 starts there in Xfinity and Cup, but Saturday’s race will be my first time there in a truck. Richmond has very normal characteristics of a short track, but it is a lot slicker than other places we go – you are fighting front and rear grip on the exit of the corners. My team has been working hard on our short-track program and I’m confident we’ll have a strong run for Andrea, Viera and everyone at Marquis and Make-A-Wish.”
Truex on Marquis 900 Wishes Paint Scheme: “It’s really an honor to carry 900 really special Make-A-Wish names this weekend at Richmond,” said Truex. “I’m honored to work with Marquis and for the work that they do with a truly incredible organization like Make-A-Wish. This might be my first Truck Series start at Richmond, but I have a lot of Xfinity and Cup experience here that I think will pay off. I’m excited for Saturday afternoon’s race.”
Truex at Richmond: While it is Truex’s first start in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series at Richmond Raceway, the 29-year-old driver is no stranger to the .75-mile track, with seven NASCAR Xfinity Series starts to his credit. In those seven starts, Truex has one top-five finish and three top-10 finishes.
Truex also has three NASCAR Cup Series starts to his credit, with his most recent coming in 2014.
On the Truck: The No. 40 Chevrolet will carry Marquis and Make-A-Wish colors at Richmond Raceway.
