JAMIE MCMURRAY QUOTES:

"Dover is definitely one of those places that if you can avoid the wrecks and be around at the end, you'll have a good finish. Things happen so fast at Dover that you don't have much time to react if something goes wrong in front of you."

"We're taking a proven car this weekend to Dover. This is the same car we've run at tracks like Rockingham, Fontana and Chicago with, and it's the same car we had at Dover back in May, so I feel very confident heading into the race."

"The Havoline team has a lot of momentum on its side. We've had some strong runs the past few weeks and have put ourselves in contention to win races. I think Dover is going to be another momentum builder for the Havoline team."
