Quotable:
“We’re coming off of a strong showing in Bristol where we qualified second and made several good runs throughout the weekend, especially in the heat of the day. We’re heading into that grueling stretch of hot summer races, and it gives me confidence knowing Del (Worsham) has a solid hot weather tune-up for our Bandero GR Supra. It’s looking like it’s going to be a scorcher this weekend in Richmond with temps in the mid-to-upper 90s both days. Obviously, that’ll put a lot of strain on the teams, especially given Saturday’s fast turn-and-burn pace with the three qualifying runs on the schedule. This weekend is set to be a challenging one, but it’s races like this where you really have to dig deep and stay focused on the task at hand. Whoever wins this one will really have to earn it, and we’re going to work hard to make sure we put ourselves in the best possible position to finish Sunday in the winner’s circle.”
