Richards’ Thoughts on Racing at Volusia Speedway Park: “It’s great to be back at Volusia Speedway Park. We tried some different setups earlier in the week in the DIRTcar sanctioned events. We’re trying to put together the best combinations for the World of Outlaws events. It looks like were going to have a fast track this weekend. We’re going to try our best to go out and win some more World of Outlaws Late Model Races.”
