The big NASCAR haulers rolling into the city of Richmond this weekend are a symbol that it’s time to go racin’ once again in the 804. The fall races at Richmond International Raceway are nothing short of competitive excitement as it’s NASCAR’s final Sprint Cup race before the Championship Chase. That means that all of the top drivers are racing for a chance to be in the field for a title run, and for the ones who are desperately trying to get into the NASCAR playoffs, well, it’s every man for himself in this one.
Chesterfield native Denny Hamlin is already locked-in on the Championship Chase as he currently sits at No. 7 in the Sprint Cup point standings, and as always, Denny would love to drive into victory lane here at home in Richmond. Some of the drivers facing a “must-win” scenario this weekend are 5-time champion Jeff Gordaon, Kyle Busch, Carl Edwards, and Kasey Kahne.
