It was a wild night of racing at Richmond International Raceway with several teams battling in their final chance to earn a spot in The Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup. When the Wonderful Pistachios 400 was over it was Denny Hamlin who had secured his place in NASCAR’s 10-race playoff with a ninth-place finish. Kyle Busch, who entered the night already secure in his place in the Chase, finished the night in the sixth position, while an engine failure left Joey Logano in 35th.

After the attacks on September 11th, 2001 the No. 36 M&M’S car of Ken Schrader went to Dover with only an American Flag design covering the sheetmetal. This year marks the 10th anniversary of the events on 9/11/2001. To recognize those lost on that day, the M&M’S car of Kyle Busch will run the same paint scheme at Richmond. Enjoy these photos and a timelapse video of the car being wrapped in an American Flag.
