There are six drivers currently signed up for double duty this weekend in the Sprint Cup/X-FINITY Series twin bill at Richmond International Raceway: Kyle Busch, Landon Cassill, Austin Dillon, Joey Logano, Brian Scott and J-J Yeley. Busch and Logano are former Cup Series race winners in Richmond, Busch four times and Logano once. Busch also is a five-time Richmond winner in the X-FINITY Series.
