Todd Warshaw/Getty Images(RICHMOND, Va.) — NASCAR heads to Virginia this weekend and will be at Richmond Motor Speedway.  Coming into this weekend, Greg Biffle currently sits atop the Sprint Cup standings, followed by Martin Truex Jr., and Matt Kenseth.

A person very familiar with the Richmond track is Denny Hamlin who won the 2009 and 2010 September races there and is coming off a win last weekend at Kansas Motor Speedway.

“Probably my favorite memory is when I ran second to Dale (Earnhardt) Jr. there,” said Hamlin when asked about his best moment at Richmond.

Truex Jr. talks about his team’s hot start to the season.

“We’re here for the long haul, we’re here for the rest of the season,” said Truex Jr.  “We’ve been solid each week; I know our wins are going to come.”

Kevin Harvick won the last race at Richmond in September.

“This has been a racetrack that fits my driving style,” said Harvick.  “We’re looking forward to going to Richmond and continue that success.”
