Matt Kenseth on racing at Richmond: "Racing at Richmond is always fun and I enjoy coming here. I'm just such a fan of the smaller tracks and racing under the lights will be cool for the fans to watch. We've had a win here and a string of top ten finishes so I'm looking forward to it. It was great to finally get our first win of the season last weekend in the Busch Series and I think we'll carry that momentum forward coming into Richmond."

Crew Chief Robbie Reiser on racing at Richmond: "We are bringing car number 20 to Richmond this weekend. This car has never been raced but we have tested it twice, at Las Vegas and most recently in Indy. The test at Indy was better than usual so we're optimistic about the car's performance this weekend. The Busch win last weekend in Darlington should be a confidence boost for both teams going into Richmond, so I think we'll come out good there."
