“Richmond is cool for me because it’s where I got my first Cup win. The past few races we’ve been really good there and I hope we can continue to build on that. It will be an intense night because it’s the last chance for a lot of drivers to lock themselves into the playoffs. Fortunately, we are locked in and we’ll focus on getting the best result we can.”

Kasey Kahne on racing at Richmond

“It would be great. We need to continue to run like we have ran these past couple of weeks and have solid weekends altogether. I feel like our qualifying efforts have really improved here lately, which is what we need and I think what is going to be even more important as time goes on, so we need to continue to do that. Getting in is one thing, but doing something when you get in, if you get in, is another thing and you want to be able to do something if you can get in. We need to continue to run like we have been running these past couple of weeks to have a chance to continue forward if we are lucky enough to make it.”

Chase Elliott on potentially making the playoffs for the second consecutive season

"Richmond is always exciting for the fans. It will be interesting to see who makes it into the playoffs. There are a few scenarios that have to play out. A lot of guys are racing for their seasons this weekend so there is a lot on the line for some. I'm ready to get these next 10 weeks going and chase our eighth championship. The summer hasn’t been to kind to the No. 48 team."

Jimmie Johnson on racing at Richmond

“Richmond is a track that I’ve had a lot of success at, though not so much recently. It’s really hard to get a hold of and hard to figure out exactly what line we’re running and where you need to put your car to get it to work. It’s been a bit of a challenge for us over the last couple of trips, but it should still be a fun race.”
