Richmond International Raceway is known for producing thrilling excitement on the track. At three-quarters of a mile, it is the third-shortest track on the Sprint Cup circuit and there is always action going on somewhere.
Like the other short tracks, Richmond tends to be a track that certain drivers get dialed in and proceed to dominate for several races. Dale Earnhardt Jr. had two wins and a runner-up during a five-race stretch from 2004 to 2006. Jimmie Johnson won three of four races in 2007 and 2008.
Lately, it's been the Joe Gibbs drivers dominating, with Kyle Busch winning the last two spring races and Denny Hamlin the last two fall events.
What will happen at Richmond on Saturday night? No one knows, but here are my best predictions at what to expect.
