R3 Motorsports looking for solid finish under the lights of Chicagoland Speedway
CHINA GROVE, N.C. – When the green flag flies over the 1.5-mile oval and under the lights of Chicagoland Speedway on Saturday night, Robert Richardson, Jr. and the No. 23 North Texas Pipe Dodge have one goal in mind – get a good finish.
After a rough couple of weeks with unfortunate incidents ending races early for the team, the goal to make it to the checkered flag is forefront on their minds as they head to the Midwest facility. Not only does it reward Walter Giles (crew chief) and the team for their hard work getting ready for the race, but also pays off in points and pride.
Making it even more exciting for the Nationwide Series is the fact they will be the only NASCAR series at the track, sharing the weekend with the ARCA Series. Their brethren in the Sprint Cup and Camping World Truck Series will be competing in Kansas.
Robert Richardson, Jr. Quotes: “If there are two things I really like about racing is 1.5-mile tracks with multiple grooves, and doing it under the lights. This was a great move by Chicagoland to bring us in to do that on a Saturday night. I hope the fans are looking forward to it as much as we are this weekend.
“I like racing Chicagoland because you do have the choice of grooves to run to get your car faster and handling better. The one thing I know every week when we show up is our cars are ready to race. Walter and the guys put a lot of effort into preparing our cars, and this weekend we just need to put a total race together and get the results we all deserve.
“So, turn on the lights and drop that green flag on Saturday night – we’re looking forward to it.”
