“Always love going to the Richmond track and getting back on the East Coast. I have some unfinished business at Virginia Motorsports Park. I’ve been to the finals there a few times, most recently in 2019 the last time we were there, but I’ve never been to the Richmond winner’s circle. It’s one of the few remaining tracks on the tour that I’ve never won, and I’m ready to take care of business there this weekend. But first, we’ve got to go out and qualify well, and take it one round at a time and put ourselves in the best position to make it a long race day on Sunday. Our Matco Tools/Lucas Oil team is hungry. We’re starving, actually, and we’re looking forward to getting out there and doing the work.”
