KAZ GRALA QUOTES:
Talk a little bit about the advantages and disadvantages of a double-header weekend.
“I’m really excited to run two races at the same track in a weekend. I think that will help me get warmed up, especially before the second race on Saturday. I think it will definitely take away some of the disadvantages I usually face while only running part-time. Richmond is a fun place, which I really enjoy racing at. To me, Richmond Raceway is such a rhythm track. I think having the opportunity to run two races and 500 laps total is really going to benefit us. The only unknown or disadvantage I can think of is, I have never raced at Richmond during the day. It will be interesting to see how much the track changes in the heat of the day. I’m really not sure what to expect. I know it will be a lot different, but I’m confident my team will prepare for that and we’ll have a really fast ruedebusch.com Chevrolet for both races.”
You’ve had a strong start to the 2020 season in the races you have competed in. What are the expectations for this weekend at Richmond Raceway?
“The goal is always to contend for the win. I don’t see any reason why we shouldn’t be able to. I have all the confidence in my crew chief, Andy Street, and my entire No. 21 Richard Childress Racing team. I think if we can just go out there and have a solid top-five day in our No. 21 ruedebusch.com Chevrolet, we can put ourselves in position when it matters most. If we can have a strong performance in the first race, I think that will translate to the second race as well.”
