Quotes:“I’m excited about heading to Richmond this weekend for the first round of the NASCAR Playoffs. With Richmond being a short-track it’s right up my alley. We had a pretty decent showing there in the Spring and collected a top-10 finish. It always helps to have a solid notebook going into the weekend. I’m all in and ready to lock this team into the Round of 8. I am honored to represent Safeway this weekend. Their presence is really big in the Virginia area and will have some guests attending the race. Hopefully we are able to make their experience a memorable one and park it in Victory Lane.”
