Jeffrey Earnhardt on Richmond:
“I’m happy to be returning to Richmond for this weekend’s Toyota Owners 400 in our No.32 CorvetteParts.Net Go Fas Racing Ford Fusion. We had some issues that put us down a few laps in Bristol but the car, team and I felt like we found speed and gained confidence during the race which we can carry over to this weekend. The ending positions haven’t been what we want but there’s no question we’re heading in the right direction.”
Crew Chief Wally Rogers will be bringing chassis GFR-897 to serve as the primary car. This chassis was last ran at Martinsville earlier this month. Chassis GFR-802 will serve as the backup car
