Andretti Comments on Crown Royal 400 at Richmond International Raceway
April 28, 2009 – "Richmond is a favorite of a lot of guys. It's a short track, but it's a 'bigger' short track too. It's unique in a lot of ways. It will wear your neck out more than Bristol will. You never stop turning at Richmond. The whole straightaway is a turn. The only rest you get is about the two seconds you go down the back.
"I like the fact that it's a 'racers' track. I think a lot of guys agree. You can race down at the bottom, run the middle or run the top. You never know where the race is going to be won. It's been won from all three. It's a great little track. There is 'rooting' and 'gouging', but this isn't Martinsville. We can put on a great show and usually always do. I'm sure after Talladega, a bunch of us are looking forward to it.
"Our team, Front Row Motorsports with Window World support this weekend, has overachieved in some areas and underachieved in others. We're looking at the areas that we can get better and trying to capitalize on that. We're still a new race team. People have spoken about the new teams that have come in this season, but this is a whole new team too.
"Sure, Front Row Motorsports has been around for while, but this is a whole new team. We have a new location (Statesville, N.C.), new people, new parts, different equipment and a lot of good things going on. The only thing that is the same is the team name, Front Row Motorsports and Bob Jenkins (team owner).
"We're getting our legs underneath us. We're a July, August team. I don't mean we're going to be chasing down Hendrick Motorsports at that time, but we're certainly going to be making strides forward at that point. Right now, it's one race at a time. The next race is in Richmond. Our hope is to have another good night and continue to build with this team."
