Veteran driving instructor and road course racing specialist Chris Cook is back behind the wheel of the #43 VisitPA.com/CAPG Dodge for his third career NASCAR Busch Series oval-track event at Friday night's Emerson Radio 250 on the Richmond International Raceway three-quarter-mile tri-oval.

At this year's first Richmond race, Aaron Fike flirted with a top-10 finish early in the race before getting squeezed into the outside retaining wall, requiring pit stops for repairs that took him out of contention.

CHRIS COOK QUOTES ON RICHMOND -- "I'm really looking forward to taking our act to Richmond. We'll be taking a different race car than the team had there in the spring, so hopefully that'll mean good things. It's going to be one of the most competitive races of the season, as it always seems to be at Richmond. It's an absolutely great track -- very technical in nature. That's right up my alley. I can't wait to go to work on it. There are a lot of great drivers and teams out there. We'll definitely have our work cut out for us. But we'll be up to the task, for sure. The CAPG guys have poured their heart and soul into this effort. Chris Evans has put together a tremendous sponsorship package with VisitPA.com. So we'll definitely want to put on a good show for them, and everybody involved with this effort. Hopefully, we'll put it solidly in the show and have a great race. It's certainly within the realm of possibility if all goes according to plan."
