Baker Curb driver battles changing track at Richmond

In only his second time racing at Richmond International Raceway, Brad Coleman and the No. 27 Huggies Ford Fusion team missed the sweet spot in Friday's Lipton Tea 250.

The No. 27 Huggies Ford qualified 19th and crossed the finish line in 26th place.

The young driver commented, "In practice, the difference between the car running first and the car running 24th was less than four tenths of a second; competition here is tough and really close together. With our only practice occurring in the morning and the race taking place at night, we have to work against track temperatures and Mother Nature to get our car just right. It takes a lot of fine tuning to make the necessary adjustments here. The car wasn't what we thought it was and it was difficult to make up ground with only a few pit stops during the race."

The No. 27 team heads to Darlington this week for another Friday night showdown with the rest of the garage in the NASCAR Nationwide Series.

Coleman added, "I'm eager to get to Darlington next weekend. I have never been before and as they say, it is the mile too tough to tame. I'm looking forward to conquering the task at hand."
