“Richmond is not too far from my hometown in New Jersey, and it’ll be great to see family and friends who come out to support us. It’s going to be our first race with just two days of competition, and I’m really looking forward to it. This is looking like the hottest conditions we’ve seen this year, and this is definitely one of those races where we need to put our heads down and get after it. We know it’s going to be hot and tricky, but we’re ready for that challenge and I think this is going to be a breakout race for our Matco Tools Toyota team. We’re very eager to get there and ready to get it going.”
