“I’m excited to be racing at Richmond again this weekend. We came so close here last season in my first ever Xfinity Series start and I’m really looking forward to seeing what we can do this time around with JR Motorsports and our Switch Chevrolet. We’ve had a lot of positive momentum here lately and I’m confident that we can keep building off that and be in contention all night long on Friday.”
