Quotes:

Michael Annett, driver No. 1 Pilot Flying J team

“Our Pilot Flying J Chevy didn’t quite fire off the way we wanted it to in practice, but Travis Mack (crew chief) and the guys played around with some adjustments to improve the handling. This No. 1 team has been strong all season long and I have confidence that we’ll be in the hunt at the end of tonight’s race.”

Justin Allgaier, driver No. 7 BRANDT Professional Agriculture team

“I’m looking forward to racing under the lights tonight at Richmond Raceway. Our BRANDT Professional Agriculture Camaro was pretty strong in practice. The weather was cooler this morning and I feel like the temperature was comparable to how racing conditions will be when the sun goes down. I think we’ll be fast tonight.”

Zane Smith, driver No. 8 PatientPop team

“We learned a lot today during practice and I feel like we have a really fast PatientPop Chevrolet for tonight. Taylor (Moyer, crew chief) has done a great job giving me a car that I feel really comfortable with for my first time here. I’m really looking forward to seeing how tonight goes. Hopefully we can come away with another solid run.”

Noah Gragson, driver No. 9 Switch team

“Our Switch Chevrolet felt really good during practice today and I am really comfortable with the direction we are heading in for tonight. I really enjoy racing here in Richmond and ending practice on top of the speed chart definitely gives me a lot of confidence heading into the race. Now we just need to keep going like we are and we should be able to come home with a really strong run tonight.”
