What is your outlook going into this weekend at Richmond?
“I’m really excited to get to Richmond. The trucks hadn’t been there for a few years, so when the trucks went back last year, it was a pretty big deal to be part of it all. As an organization, KBM is really strong with short tracks so to help build the short track program with going back to Richmond. Going back this year, I think we are going to better in our JBL Toyota Tundra.”
Does Richmond remind you of any short tracks that you grew up on in late models?
“Richmond kind of reminds of Five Flags Speedway in Pensacola, Florida. Other than that, it is a really unique track. It tears up the tires as a run goes on. You have to really be messing with the throttle all the time and racing the track. The characteristics are honestly like Pensacola.”
Have you discussed with your crew chief about the differences between a day and night race?
“I don’t think there is going to be much of a difference due to the cloud cover. If the sun is out, the track is going to be completely different. It’s going to be really greasy and slick. It’s going to be all about tire management. If the clouds stay around, it’s probably going to be similar to how the night race was.”
