ANTHONY ALFREDO QUOTE:
You were able to lead laps and showed a lot of speed earlier this season at Talladega Superspeedway. What is it going to take to get the job done this weekend?
“I definitely have a lot more confidence heading into this weekend with a few Superspeedway starts on my resume now. We were able to get up front and lead some laps at Talladega earlier this season, and that is a testament to everybody at RCR and ECR for bringing such fast Chevrolets to the racetrack. Our team is notorious for being fast at Talladega, which means I know we will be very competitive and have a chance to win. I have my spotter, Derek Kneeland, on the stand, who is the best in the business, so I have confidence he will be able to guide me throughout the day and put us in the best position to win the race in our No. 21 Ceco Building Systems Chevrolet. Talladega is a bit of a wild card, but at the end of the day if we can keep our nose clean throughout the race, we should have a great opportunity to bring home a trophy this weekend.”
Richard Childress Racing at Talladega Superspeedway… Richard Childress began his driving career at Talladega Superspeedway in 1969 and is in a tie for the most all-time car owner victories at the storied Alabama-based race track with 12 NASCAR Cup Series wins. Dale Earnhardt has earned nine Talladega wins under the RCR banner, including his final career win in the 2000 Winston 500. Other drivers winning for RCR include Clint Bowyer (2010 and 2011), and Kevin Harvick (2010). The Welcome, N.C. organization has also found success in the NASCAR Xfinity Series with one win, 10 top-five, and 18 top-10 finishes.
NASCAR Playoffs… Austin Dillon is in the midst of his fourth NASCAR Playoffs appearance and is currently battling in the Round of 12. The No. 3 team will look to rebound this weekend after mechanical issues relegated them to a 32nd place finish after running in the top-five for the majority of the race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Dillon advanced out of the Round of 16 following three strong performances in the opening round of the NASCAR Playoffs (second at Darlington Raceway, fourth at Richmond Raceway, and 12th at Bristol Motor Speedway).
