What do you expect going to Richmond this weekend?

“It’s a place we definitely have a lot of confidence at and had a lot of good runs over the years, but that was with the old car, so it’s really a whole new ballgame this weekend. At the end of the day, your car has to rotate the center and have good drive off. If you can do that, you’re going to have a good day.”
