"The Richmond race is going to be really aggressive. You'll have guys trying to race their way into the Chase. We aren't in the position of racing for a Chase spot this year, but we are most definitely still racing for our points. Where we end up at the end of the year is very important for our team. So, we're still going to be racing hard. But you are definitely aware of what's going on and who's racing for what. We also will have our partners from The Pete Store on our car this weekend, so we want to have a good finish for them."
