Robert Richardson on Racing at Kansas Speedway: “Kansas is a pretty simple race track to get around. It is similar to Chicago and Nashville with smooth, wide corners.  The racing should be great there; it is a track where you can run two and three wide. I raced there for the first time last year and had a decent run.  I am really looking forward to a great run in the Mahindra Tractor Chevrolet this weekend.” 

Steve Plattenberger: “I am looking forward to a good weekend at Kansas Speedway. The Mahindra Tractors Team has worked very hard on this car.  We have run this chassis four times this season and it has been a great car for us.  Robert has some experience at Kansas Speedway so we expect a solid finish.”
