William Byron's Thoughts: "Richmond is always an exciting race and I am ready to get back to the track on Friday. We are racing under the lights, which is always a fun event for the fans. Our team has been working hard on this new composite body car and I think we will get a good feel for the car on Friday morning in practice. Hopefully we can grab another win before the regular season ends next week."
