– From the Driver’s Seat:
“Richmond has been a track where I’ve run well in the past, but with varying strategies through the race, don’t always get the finish I think we deserve. Earlier this season, we qualified top five and lost the handling a little during the race and made some mistakes early. As the race played out with teams on various strategies, things just didn’t work out for us and we finished outside the top 20. Short tracks and road courses have definitely been the tracks where we’ve struggled this year to figure out the best set up and what we need out of the new car. We’ve been working hard to get better on those tracks and I think we’ll be good this weekend. After our strong last week in Michigan, I’m excited to get to the track and continuing to put ourselves in position for strong runs and a chance at the win.”
