Elliott Sadler No. 88 GT Vodka Chevrolet

"I'm really thankful to be back with GT Vodka and JR Motorsports at Richmond.The GT Vodka Chevrolet is a great looking car, and it's always a thrill to race at Richmond because it's so close to home for me.I've been coming to this track for a long, long time; ever since I was a teenager.A lot of my kinfolk still have seats on the top row over looking the start/finish line, so I really want to have a good run on Friday night.

"I'm fully expecting to run well this weekend, especially with all the momentum that the No. 88 team is bringing into this race after their win from last week.I was thrilled to see Pops (Eury Sr.), Jamie and that whole team get a win.I can attest first hand to how hard that team has been working this year, and it's great to see them rewarded for their efforts."

Aric Almirola No. 7 JRM Chevrolet

"Everyone is excited to get a jump on next season.I've ran the No. 88 with Pops before, but this is my first opportunity to run in the No. 7 car with Tony (Eury) Jr.Although I'll be with the 88 team next year, this is a great chance to get more familiar with the entire JRM team, and how the whole organization operates.

"Richmond offers some great short track racing.You can be it'll be an exciting race for both the drivers and the fans.We want to set realistic goals for this weekend, and knowing the type of preparation and where the 7 car is capable of running, I'm not going to be happy with anything short of a top-10 run."

TEAM POINTS POSITION - The No. 88 GT Vodka team are ranked seventh in the 2010 owner points after its victory at Atlanta.The No. 7 team lost one position and is 17th in owner points.
