Burton's Team Grabs Pit Crew Challenge Win In Dover

Jeff Burton's pit crew took home the $10,500 first-place check for winning the Checkers®/Rally's® Double Drive-Thru Challenge in Sunday's Neighborhood Excellence 400 at Dover International Speedway.

The No. 31 crew, which assisted its veteran driver to a fourth-place finish in the 400-lap, 400-mile Nextel Cup race, spent the least amount of time on pit road -- 395.590 seconds.

"The Team Cingular pit crew has done a tremendous job all season and that performance continued this past weekend in Dover," said Burton. "Not only do they have great pit stops, they are very consistent so we can always rely on them. I'm very proud of the entire team and the over-the-wall crew has been a big part of our success so far this season."

Burton's over-the-wall crew includes: Josh Yost (jackman), Kevin Nervegna (front-tire carrier), Joe Zielinski (front-tire changer), Jason Fowler (rear-tire carrier), Aaron Smith (rear-tire changer), Larry Hartle (gasman), Rich Burgess (catch can) and Wes Adams (windshield). The pit crew coordinator is Corrine Mauldin.

The No. 31 team became the eighth pit crew of the season to win the weekly Checkers/Rally's Double Drive-Thru Challenge. A bonus of $105,000 will be presented to the team with the most wins at the completion of the 36-race schedule.

The Checkers/Rally's Double Drive-Thru Challenge is in its second season with the Nextel Cup Series.
