Notes & Quotes

The Equipment... The Phillips 66 team will compete with "Chumley" this weekend at Richmond International Raceway. "Chumley" made its last appearance at Indianapolis Raceway Park, finishing 25th. The same car also ran at Richmond, New Hampshire, Nazareth, Nashville, Chicagoland and St. Louis earlier this year.

Casey Mears' Thoughts On Richmond... "It's been said before, but Richmond is a great place to race. It's a multi-groove track that allows you the necessary room to race. You typically don't have that luxury at most other short tracks."

Casey Mears' Thoughts On Returning to Richmond... "I'm hoping for redemption at Richmond on Friday night. We weren't able to really show the potential of the our car during the spring race because we were caught up in an accident, but I think we'll be strong."

Casey Mears' Thoughts On Last Weekend's Race at Darlington... "We had a very good car. I think we could have had a top-10, maybe a top-five finish if the race went on. Compared to the last couple of weeks-it feels good to have left Darlington with a 12th-place finish. I'm looking forward to the next three or four races because we're returning to tracks that we've run well at earlier in the season. The results don't necessarily reflect it, but we had some really good cars at places like Richmond, Dover and Charlotte."
