Chris Buescher on racing at Richmond International Raceway
“I’m looking forward to this weekend. I love short track racing, it’s what we all grew up on. To be able to get back to it and rub a little bit and beat the bumpers off these things is always a good time. Richmond puts on a good race, so it should be a good one for us.”
