Paul Menard on racing at Richmond International Raceway:

"I know Matt Puccia has come up with a solid setup and race strategy. We have been fast and competitive all year, so I expect our Richmond/Menards Ford Fusion to be very competitive from the outset of the race. As long as we stay out of trouble and have solid pit stops, a strong finish is inevitable."

Crew chief Matt Puccia on racing at Richmond International Raceway:

"The key to running well at Richmond is handling and track position. If we can qualify up front and run well at the top and be able to pass on the bottom we will be in good shape. Paul has been the model of consistency all year, so we are confident this team will be in contention this weekend."
