Ok so, let's begin preparation for the Federated Auto Parts 400 at Richmond Raceway. I thought we might do something a little bit unorthodox this time...

Eric has pulled some strings for us and organised afterhours access to the track for a friendly night training competition.

This will be a good way to have some fun after the last race and get you accustomed to the course.

Thanks to some drafting manoeuvres we were able to at least nab some points for placing in the top 10. We are going to be starting around the back of the pack though for this next leg.
