CREW CHIEF RICK VIERS ON RICHMOND

"This is a big race for us, Red Man Moist Snuff's parent company, Swedish Match North America, is based in Richmond so we want to represent them well at their home track. We are taking car 82, which is the same car Greg had a strong run with at Phoenix a few weeks ago. The car was a little tight at Phoenix and we've made four or five small adjustments to try and make the car a little freer. I think Friday night it will be a little bit cooler and it will help with grip. Overall I think we have a much better set-up this weekend. It's going to be very important to have track position on Friday, there usually is a long green flag run and you don't want to be caught in the back of the pack."

CREW CHIEF RICK VIERS ON IMPORTANCE OF NEXT FOUR RACES

"We are looking to carry the momentum of another strong run last week at Talladega into the next stretch of races. Just as we have done all year, we expect Greg will be able to run in the top 5 and compete for the win. We have Greg in the car for the next four races and our goal as a team is to be in the top five in owner's points after those four races. We have to make our team an attractive option for potential sponsors for when the Red Man Moist Snuff sponsorship ends."
