No. 28 Hitachi Power Tools Ford Fusion

"Dover is a very unique race track, since it is concrete and high-banked, and I feel that it's the fastest one-mile track we visit on the circuit. Entry into the corner is also very different from any other track we go to because at Dover you kind of fall down into the corners. I think it's a really cool race track and I enjoy racing there because it is so unique and fast. The straightaways are pretty narrow, but you have the ability to run any line there which helps when it comes to advancing through the field. We had a great car when we raced here earlier in the season after we qualified 12th and finished 11th, so I'm excited to see what happens this weekend with our Hitachi Power Tools Ford."

Crew chief Todd Parrott on Dover:

"I cannot wait to get to Dover this weekend and go racing at "The Monster Mile." We're taking the same car we raced the first time we came here this season, so based on our 12th-place finish, I have to believe we'll be able to finish about the same, if not better for this weekend's race. Racing at Dover on the concrete is pretty treacherous, but the keys to success are: having a good-balanced race car, staying out of trouble, clean pit stops, and good track position. We feel that this is going to be another strong weekend for the No. 28 Hitachi Power Tools team."
