Mike Bliss on Dover International Speedway ... "We have been working hard on our CoT program and will hopefully see the results of that work at Dover this weekend. We have built a brand new car and feel confident that we will qualify for the race. Track position is key at Dover because it is difficult to pass there. A good starting position and fast pit stops are also essential to success as well as tire management."
