“I think most everyone likes racing at Richmond. This is a place that tires seem to dictate as much as anything as to what groove we run. I feel like the day races are a little bit better than the night races because the groove seems to widen out more. Over the last few years we have had several different tire compounds and combinations at Richmond, some races we run all the way up to the wall and some races there is no groove on the outside. It changes race-to-race based on the tires, but the best part of racing there is that tires make a big difference. When the caution comes out everyone will take new tires, it’s not like some places where you can run faster on scuffs. We have been really good a Richmond that last few times there, so I’m looking forward to having a good race for our team and securing a spot in the playoffs.”
