May 2, 2008
RICHMOND, Va. (May 2, 2008) -- Joe Nemechek will start 36th in Saturday night's NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Richmond International Raceway.
"This is a start of a good weekend," said Nemechek. "We had some problems in practice, but everyone on this Furniture Row Racing team dug deep to come up with a solution for our qualifying lap. This was a strong team effort headed by our crew chief Jay Guy. These cars are so sensitive that one little hiccup could send you home early."
In Friday evening's qualifying session, Nemechek's Chevrolet Impala recorded a lap time and speed of 21.772 seconds at 124.012 miles per hour.
Saturday night's race will be televised on FOX, beginning with a prerace show at 7 p.m. EDT ( 5 p.m. MDT).
