From the Cockpit:
Brandon Jones: “We are heading to Richmond Raceway after a huge win at Darlington. We had a lot of speed all day, made no mistakes and when it mattered the most we were there. The win will bring a great boost of confidence for the doubleheader weekend at one of my toughest tracks. This will be my ninth start at Richmond Raceway and as a team we have been getting stronger each week at some of my hardest tracks. We will have Menards as our primary sponsor and Inspire back on our hood for both races. There will be a big contrast in the two races since one will be run at night and the other in the middle of the day. Track temperatures will make a huge difference in my Supra. Making sure we capitalize on the changes quickly and effectively will be key. Overall, Richmond’s a great place to go racing and I’m looking forward to having two opportunities to get my fourth Xfinity Series win”.
TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
