Wallace's thoughts on Richmond international Raceway . . .

"Richmond has always been a strong track for me. I've got three wins there and lots of top-5's and top-10's, so I always look forward to racing there because I know that I have past success to build on. The AutoZone team tested at Richmond a few weeks ago and we have a really fast car for the race. I am really looking forward to this weekend because I know that the #22 AutoZone Ford will be really fast right off the truck and this should be our best chance to win in a while. I will be really disappointed if we don't run up front and challenge for the win on Friday night."
