RACE PREVIEW

rir 16.1

TOYOTA OWNERS 400

RICHMOND INTERNATIONAL RACEWAY

APRIL 21st, 6:30PM CHARLOTTE TIME FOX TV

¾ MILE 14 DEGREES of BANKING

The last race of the spring short track season promises the one constant of all short tracks:  short tempers. Success here will depend on how well you qualify and whether or not you can stay up front and hopefully out of the sheet metal bumping and bending that you usually find in the back and middle of the pack. New this year is stage racing. The race will be run in three stages the first and second 100 laps each and the third is 200 laps. In the last ten years, Joe Gibbs Racing has the most wins of any team: nine or 45%. But two of the last three winners are no longer with the team Carl Edwards and Matt Kenseth. Richard Childress Racing and Team Penske are next with three wins each in the last ten years. Kyle Larson driving for Chip Ganassi Racing is the most recent winner here and Joey Lagano from Team Penske is the defending champion of this race. Will JGR dominance continue? We’ll know Saturday night under the lights.

Tuesday look for our Top 10 drivers on short tracks.
