Share your thoughts on running the NASCAR Nationwide Series event at a track where you have been so successful in the past.
"We've won a lot of races at Richmond International Raceway in both the Nationwide and Sprint Cup Series, so I'm really excited to get into the Hungry-Man Camaro Friday night. Hopefully, we can run a little better than we have so far this season, in that particular car, and pick up another win."
