QUOTES

Edwards on racing at Dover International Raceway:
"Dover is one of my favorite tracks. It's pretty much a one groove track so you need to handle well through the center of the corners in order to keep your position. Bob and the guys have been working really hard on the Car of Tomorrow and I feel like we're making some gains. Hopefully we'll get our Office Depot Fusion dialed in and handling well and get a good finish."

Crew Chief, Bob Osborne on racing at Dover International Raceway:
"Dover is a tough track. It's really unique and different from any other track that we go to. You have to have a brave driver to be fast at Dover ..I thinks it's probably one of the more physically demanding tracks on a driver, but Carl is up to the challenge. We are taking the same car we raced in Phoenix, but we've made a few significant adjustments. We've really been doing a lot of work with the Car of Tomorrow and I think we're learning a lot and making some gains.
