Ross Chastain Quote
“It’s Richmond race week. I’m ready to get over there. I’m actually just north of Richmond out in Maryland out on the peninsula with Nutrien Ag Solutions. We’re checking out some soy beans. It’s cool to be this involved with my sponsor. It’s a dream come true for me to work with a group like Nutrien Ag Solutions. We want to have another good run for them starting on Friday night. We’ll be starting on the pole after our good run in Darlington with the fastest lap of the race, third place in points and a second place finish – that’s NASCAR’s nice, easy math formula. That was pretty easy math for me – that meant we get to start first.

I can’t wait to get to Richmond. We will work on saving tires. It’s another tire degradation track, and it will be tough to make those long runs. Hopefully we have a long run, and we can really exploit that track. Hopefully Goodyear brings us tires that we’re able to move around on and move off the bottom and really get that second and third lane rubbered in. That really makes for some good racing. Brakes are another big thing at Richmond. I’ve had brake failures there – not fun. It’s definitely not something I want ever again, and we’ve really worked on our brake package, even at places like Darlington. We made a lot of improvements there and it showed in our speed. I can’t wait to get there in our Nutrien Ag Solutions traditional colors on Friday and Saturday.”
