Quotes:

Lance Norick:
"I am excited-John [Monsam] won here last year and that gives me a lot of confidence going in."

John Monsam, Crew Chief:
"Richmond is a very challenging track. It takes a very precise combination to make the truck right. The driver really has to focus and hit his marks."

"The cool thing about Richmond is that it is a multi-grooved track. You can run 2-wide all day and never touch each other."
