NASCAR rolls into Richmond as drivers take their last shot to make the chase at the Wonderful Pistachios 400. NASCAR makes a pit stop at the White House, Jeff Gordon marks a milestone, and NASCAR takes a moment to remember september 11th.
FOX News Radio’s Marghiee “Trackside” Teshineh has the latest in this edition of FOX in the Fast Lane:
Kyle Busch won at Richmond in the spring and is happy to wrap up the season here.
“I enjoy going to Richmond, it’s been a fun place and a great place for me for results lately.”
Denny Hamlin wishes he did not have to worry about qualifying for the chase at Richmond.
“You want to be able to go out there and focus on getting your best finish, but when you have constant worry about where the other guys are running,it’s no fun at all.”
During a ceremony to honor NASCAR, President Obama noted the similarities between his job and racing.
“NASCAR’s a sport where anything that can go wrong, will go wrong at some point during the season… similar to being President.” (LAUGHTER)
Jeff Gordon, now third on the all-time winners list after his victory this week in Atlanta.
And this weekend at Richmond, in special recognition of the tenth anniversary of September 11th, the track will now have a three-lap moment of silence from laps nine through eleven.
