“I feel as though I have a good understanding of what I need to run well at Richmond and that makes it easy to communicate that to my crew chief and team. As a result, we’ve been able to put together some good finishes at Richmond. To me, it’s the ultimate short track. There is a reason that most drivers put it right at the top of their list of favorite tracks. (It’s) night racing, under the lights, which is similar to what most of us grew up doing. You can run side-by-side and rub fenders and do all of the things that the fans want to see. It’s just an exciting race track and I feel like we can put the Ruby Tuesday/Discount Tire Dodge in Victory Lane this weekend.” Brad Keselowski No. 22 Ruby Tuesday/Discount Tire Dodge Challenger R/T (In 28 short track starts in the Nationwide Series, Keselowski has four wins along with 12 top-five and 17 top-10 finishes).
“I couldn’t be more excited for this weekend’s race at Richmond. It’s one of my favorite tracks and I have had a lot of success here, both in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series and the IndyCar Series, so I was thrilled when I saw I would get the opportunity to race here again in the Nationwide Series. The last time I ran a PPG-sponsored Dodge was at Pocono a few years ago and we came home fourth, which has been the best NASCAR finish of my career. I am hoping that the momentum and luck can carry over to this weekend for the No. 12 Olympic Paints Dodge Challenger.” Sam Hornish Jr. No. 12 Olympic Paints Dodge Challenger R/T
