Meet the Press
Hemric is scheduled to meet with members of the NASCAR media on Friday, Sept. 20, starting at 3:15 p.m. local time in the Richmond Raceway media center.
"Richmond Raceway is one of my absolute favorite racetracks. I love going to that place. It is really slick and worn out. There is really a lot of opportunity to work on your car to get mechanical grip and the things that we don't get to focus on at a lot of the racetracks we go to with this current package. Because of that, there is a lot of opportunity to have a good short-run car or a good long-run car, or to find that happy medium. Austin Dillon and the No. 3 team had a great run there in April - really, his last two runs at Richmond have been very, very solid. We had a different approach with the No. 8 team, but they have had repeated success and when you have repeated success that doesn't happen by accident. We will definitely lean on a lot of their notes going into this weekend's race and hope for the best with this No. 8 Caterpillar Chevrolet team. Richmond is a track that I have had circled since we left there in April, knowing what we did well and what we didn't then and capitalizing on that to improve our results. I'm pumped. I can't wait to get there this weekend."
