They also are consumers who don't have a high level of automotive repair expertise, and who trust the knowledge of these automotive experts to maintain and repair their vehicles.

Clint Bowyer on Richmond International Raceway...

What makes this short track unique from the other ones you have raced on?

"There is one thing I like about this track that Bristol doesn't have. You can race at Richmond and not hit anybody. That's the main thing I think this track has over a lot of other short tracks. You can get under other cars and race them and not have to get into them and push them out of the way. It's a cool race track and racing at night adds to the excitement."
