From the Driver’s Seat with Gray Gaulding: “Richmond (Raceway) is one of those tracks that just clicked for me, ever since the first lap in the K&N car I knew this was my kind of track. We had a great race back in the spring and I’m excited to have sweetFrog back on the car this weekend for the night race. I’m also excited to have Leete Tire joining us this weekend, I’ve known the Tatum family for several years. It’s awesome that my grandfather spends a lot of time at their Petersburg shop and now they will be ridding with me in the Cup race.”
