JASON KELLER ON RICHMOND

"I always look forward to Richmond, it's one of my favorite race tracks! It is going to be an exciting week both on and off the track because we have a great promotion going on with Depend Products and Family Dollar. We're teaming up to create awareness about the steps that males can take to reduce their risk for prostate cancer and how early detection is the key. When you have a big promotion going on at a track that you really like, it just makes race week that much more exciting!"

TODD GORDON ON RICHMOND

"Richmond under the lights should be a very exciting race! The key to having a good run there is being able to turn well in turns one and two which helps you build momentum heading down the backstretch. We are bringing car 81, which is the same car we finished ninth with in the spring race. We learned some things during the Iowa test that we have used to improve our short track set up, so I look forward to a strong run!
