After an extended weekend in Tennessee, NASCAR heads to Richmond Raceway Saturday night for the ninth race of the Cup Series season.

Richmond, the site of the Toyota Owners 400, is 0.25 miles longer than Martinsville, but NASCAR still categorizes it as a short track.

The Toyota tandem of Kyle Busch and Denny Hamlin can't be ignored either. Busch leads active Cup drivers in wins (four) and top-five finishes (15) in 25 career starts at the 0.75-mile track. Hamlin is tied for the second-most wins among active Cup drivers at his hometown track of Richmond with three wins and owns the most poles (3) and has the most laps-led there with 1,653.
