Ragan on racing at Richmond International Raceway:

"Richmond is one of my favorite tracks to race at. It's a great track and Saturday night racing is always a lot of fun for us as drivers, but is also fun for the fans that come out to watch the race. We've run well at Richmond in the past and I really look forward to being fast Saturday night."

"Last weekend was a step in the right direction, but now we need to keep moving forward. It all comes down to points and we need to keep making solid runs and trying for top-10 finishes. Richmond is a good track for David and we should be able to get a good run."
