Quote from Spencer Boyd before the race:

At Richmond Racecourse: “Richmond is my favorite track on the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series circuit. The track reminds me a lot of what I did growing up. Short tracks and wheel-to-wheel racing.

“Hopefully we can have a good race on Saturday night for everyone at Young’s Motorsports and WML Enterprises.”
