This Week's Charger... The No. 12 Penske Dodge Charger team will use chassis PRS-726 during Sunday's AAA 400 at Dover International Speedway (DIS). Keselowski last drove this chassis to a 34th-place finish at Michigan International Speedway in August.

Brad Keselowski on carrying momentum from his first career Cup Series pole at New Hampshire
"I really think I am getting more and more confident on the Cup side. That's probably the most important thing that having a year in Cup has given me. I feel like I can go out the first lap in practice and drive my car a lot harder than I used to. Everything just seems like it has become slower for me and that gives me a better feel for everything. Winning the pole last weekend at New Hampshire validated that for me, in my mind. The important thing now is to continue to progress and use the speed we've found over the last few weeks to make this team better."
Brad Keselowski on the uniqueness of Dover International Speedway
"Dover is definitely a unique track for NASCAR. I love it. I think it's one of the best tracks that we go to. We always see a good race there. Lots of side-by-side racing with drivers right on the edge. I personally like just being a fan at Dover and watching the racing from the infield because you can just see the speed there with the extreme elevation changes. I think we would all like to see more unique tracks like Dover on the schedule."
Crew chief Jay Guy on preparing for two different one-mile ovals on consecutive weekends
"The pole last weekend at New Hampshire definitely gives us some positive momentum, even though we didn't get the result that we were looking for. Now we have to prepare for a completely different, one-mile oval in Dover. The only similarity is the size of the track. Where New Hampshire has no banking, which makes it very hard to pass and get your car hooked up, Dover is just the opposite. It has plenty of banking but it's a rough racetrack on equipment. Where you worry about braking and grip at New Hampshire, you need to focus on suspension at Dover. Momentum, however, can translate between any type of racetrack and I think we have some of that on our side after the last couple of weeks."
