  • Last time out, Truex scored his third top-10 of the season, finishing 10th at Bristol Motor Speedway.
  • Truex: “This weekend is Richmond Raceway; we’re coming off a solid top 10 at Bristol and going to another short track so we’ve got some momentum on our side and we feel like we have a good feel for the short tracks. Richmond is one of my favorites. I actually have a top five there and a top 10, so I feel comfortable going in, confident in what I’ve got. Hopefully Chris and these guys can get this Bar Harbor Sea Watch Chevy up front. I’m looking forward to (the race); I’m glad to be back at night and we’ll see what we’ve got for it.”
