Menard on racing at Dover International Speedway:

"After our last run at Dover earlier this spring, I'm really looking forward to this weekend. We didn't have the best starting position in the spring, but we were able to drive up through the field. Our day was going great until we were taken out with like 100 laps to go. Hopefully, we can avoid the wrecks and have a good solid weekend of racing at Dover in our No. 98 Energizer / Menards Ford Fusion."

Crew Chief Larry Carter on racing at Dover International Speedway:

"As it is each weekend, qualifying is going to be so important this weekend in establishing good track position and putting yourself in a good position before the race even starts. It seems the No. 98 team has struggled a little this season with qualifying as a whole. Paul has been really good behind the wheel of the No. 98 Menards Ford Fusion this season, and I think could really turn it up a little bit with a little better qualifying effort on Friday."
