RICHMOND BY THE NUMBERS: In 26 career starts at Richmond in the Cup Series, Kenseth has earned one win, four top-five, and 10 top-ten finishes at the 0.75-mile track. He’s completed 10,158 of 10,403 (97.6 percent) career laps at RIR and has an average finish of 16.5 in the Sprint Cup Series. DG TEAMS SHOW SUPPORT FOR AUTISM AWARENESS: For the month of April, Dollar General and Joe Gibbs Racing will recognize National Autism Awareness Month by sporting the Autism Speaks blue puzzle piece logo on the c-posts of their Dollar General Toyotas. In their efforts to raise awareness, Dollar General is offering customers the opportunity to make donations to Autism Speaks during store check-out throughout the month of April. THIS WEEK ON THE NO. 20 DOLLAR GENERAL TOYOTA: Dollar General vendor partners Clorox, Vidal Sassoon, Hamburger Helper, Hefty and Sparkle will be featured on Joe Gibbs Racing’s No. 20 Toyota Camry this weekend at Richmond International Raceway. RACE INFO: The Toyota Owners 400 at Richmond International Raceway (0.75-mile) begins at 7:30 p.m. ET on Saturday, April 27. The race will be broadcast live on FOX, Sirius XM Channel 90 and MRN Radio. Matt Kenseth: “You want to win every week, but it’s always an added incentive to win a sponsor’s race with this being the Toyota Owners 400. Richmond has always been one of my favorite tracks but I just always haven’t had the best success there and JGR (Joe Gibbs Racing) has a lot of success at Richmond. I feel really good about going there with these new cars, especially with how strong our cars were at Martinsville and Phoenix, so hopefully we’ll run like both of those weekends and be able to contend for a win.” Crew chief Jason Ratcliff: ““After a great weekend in Kansas, I’m ready to head into Richmond this weekend. I feel like our short track program has been on the right track with how our cars performed at places like Martinsville and Bristol already this season. I really think that we’ve had strong cars and we want to give Matt (Kenseth) everything that he needs in order to go out there and run up front. One aspect that’s important at a track like Richmond is making sure that our Dollar General Toyota has the right amount of grip to help get off the corners quickly since it is a short track and position is so important.”
