“We had a good run in Richmond, finishing 22nd in just my third career Nationwide Series start. This being my second race with RAB Racing, I’m very happy with the top-25 finish. I’m blessed to be able to share this accomplishment with the continuing support of Swan Rentals. I’m going to take this experience and all that I learned this weekend and look forward to the next one.”
