The main event on Sunday will be 200 laps around the 0.75 mile short oval, and will be fought out among 36 drivers. $1,000 is guaranteed to the winner, and the total purse is over $2,000.
“For us to win on the 75th anniversary of Richmond Raceway, that’s absolutely perfect.”
“For me, I’m still so inexperienced with oval (racing), I’m just trying to learn each time,” deJong continued, talking highly of his teammates. “I do like putting in the hours to learn how to drive it, and set up the car, but these guys are just masters at dialing things in. It’s so helpful to learn from them.”
Ray: “It’s just… I don’t have any words, I’m at a loss for words. The whole reason why I even won that race was because of all of my teammates… It’s a lot, I’m just really happy.”
The virtual race will take place on Thanksgiving weekend in lieu of the real event getting axed due to COVID-19.
