Carl Edwards on racing at Richmond International Raceway:
“It’ll be great to run the Nationwide Mustang for the first time at a short track. We get to test for a day so we’ve got a really good test planned. We feel like we’ve got a good car built with all our latest updates. There’s no better track than Richmond on the Nationwide schedule. I’ve enjoyed racing there. It’s been great to me and I would love to put our Copart Ford Mustang in Victory Lane. The victories that I’ve gotten there were really hard fought. I’m very motivated and looking forward to a great weekend.”
Crew chief Drew Blickensderfer on racing at Richmond International Raceway:
“We are ready to race again with the Ford Mustang. The first time that this car hits a short track should be a lot of fun. As a team, we’ve been able to build and keep strong momentum in to these final races of the year. Carl won this fall race last year at Richmond and we are ready to do it again.”
