“Richmond is a track that really demands you manage your tire wear on the long runs. I feel like during the night races the groove doesn’t seem to widen out as much, but this is such a fun track to race on. Tires are the biggest difference maker. There will be all takers for tires under cautions, I don’t think many will try to stay out or try two tire stops. I’m looking forward to having another Saturday night race, especially with the cooler temperatures this weekend.”
