Everyone says Richmond Raceway is one of the more technical tracks we visit. This time we’ll be doing some short track racing at night. How does the day compare to the night at Richmond?
“To me, Richmond Raceway is one of the toughest tracks we have on the schedule. It’s a very flat, very technical short track. There’s a lot of things I feel that I could improve on at Richmond, so I’ll be studying hard to prepare for this weekend, whether it’s reviewing past races or having some time in our simulator. I’ll take a look back to see where my strengths were and where my weaknesses were in the spring and we’ll develop a plan from there. With the day versus night aspect, it’ll be hard to set our No. 33 Phone Skope Chevy up this weekend. We’ll be trying to set up our car for night time for when we race, but our practice session will be early Friday morning. It’s a tough track to balance, but I’m confident that our No. 33 team can handle it.”
