Justin Allgaier on Richmond International Raceway:
"Richmond was the first race with the 'new car' last year, making it a track that we have a good idea on how the car is going to handle," said Allgaier. "Richmond is a tough track to get the car to feel comfortable, we're going to work hard in practice and make sure the car gets to the point where we need it to maintain through the long runs and tight racing action that Richmond is known for."
