Robert Pressley Quotes

On Richmond: "A lot of people consider Richmond to be the most-perfect racetrack in the Busch Series, and I agree. It's one of the few places we go that has everything. You have to be fast down the straightaways, but you have to drive it like a short track. The car is important because handling is so important, but a lot of that is in the driver's hands. If you bring a speedway car and a short track mentality, you should be fine."

On the season: "There are some pretty good tracks in our limited schedule, but none are more fun than Richmond. You're always chasing the track because it changes throughout the race. For a driver, it means you have to be able to make a lot of adjustments with the way you get into a corner, and the way you exit. The best part is, it's not one of those follow-the-leader tracks. If you're only going to make selected starts, you want them to be at tracks like Richmond."

Crew Chief Dan Deeringhoff Quote

On Richmond: "There's nothing better than being able to turn Robert loose at a track like Richmond. We don't have to worry about points or anything like that, so we have weeks to get a car ready and when we get there, we race hard and have fun. We've spent a lot of attention in our preparation in getting the car to turn in the corners. You want the car to launch off the fourth turn for the run down the front straightaway, and you want it to have a lot of grip when it comes off Turn 2. Most of the trouble at Richmond happens in the second turn because it's so easy to bounce the car off the outside wall."
