Carl Edwards is sitting on the pole tonight.
Welcome one and all to the official Bleacher Report live blog for tonight's NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race, the Air Guard 400 at Richmond International Raceway. I'm Christopher Leone, and I'll be your host for tonight's coverage.
Richmond's the final event before the Chase for the Sprint Cup, but with 10 out of 12 competitors already locked into the playoffs, tonight's event may not be all that dramatic on that front. Greg Biffle needs only to finish 42nd to lock himself in. Clint Bowyer's only gotta place 28th. Not too difficult, especially when Bowyer's finished 18th or better in every start he's made at Richmond.
So grab your favorite beverage, put on ABC, and let's go...
