Jeffrey Earnhardt on Richmond:
“With all the bad luck that we have had since Michigan in June, we are definitely due to have some better luck. Everyone back at the shop and on the road have been working so hard lately, and it’s showing with us finding more speed and gaining confidence as of late but our string of bad luck doesn’t show that. I love short track racing, and love the racing that Richmond provides so hopefully things can turn around and earn a solid finish.”
