Sam Hornish Jr., driver of the Penske Racing No. 77 Mobil 1 Dodge Charger, will make his 100th career NASCAR Cup Series start this weekend at Dover International Speedway.

What are your thoughts on the race at Dover International Speedway this weekend?

"Goodyear changed the tires around a little bit for this weekend, so hopefully we will get a better idea of where we need to be on Friday. I really like Dover; it's a fun track. It feels like one of the fastest tracks on the circuit and it's definitely one of the most physical places we run at as well.

"Usually when someone wrecks at Dover, they get loose coming off the corner and slide up towards the wall. When the car slows down, they come back down the track. Everyone tries to guess where the car will go and inevitably more cars get involved in the accident. It can be like a domino effect. It's a lot like a speedway race because there aren't too many places to hide when trouble happens in front of you."

Crew Chief Travis Geisler Quote

What are your thoughts on this weekend's race at Dover International Speedway?

"Dover is one of the most demanding tracks on the circuit; it is one of my favorites. The high-banked, one-mile concrete track requires a lot from the car and the driver. The track is also pretty narrow down the straightaways, so it is difficult to avoid the wrecks in front of you. The No. 77 Mobil 1 Dodge team has been either hot or cold at Dover in the past, but we hope that our top-ten finish last week will carry some momentum into the 'Monster Mile' and it will be a good race for us."
