What makes racing at Dover International Speedway so unique?

"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 different 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. It will be interesting to see how this new car handles at Dover because of the loads that are produced along with the limited amount of travel these cars have. I'm not quite sure what to expect, but I think the Fords ran pretty well at Dover last year so we're hoping to have a similar outcome and I'm really looking forward to it."

Crew Chief, Todd Parrott:

What can we look forward to from the No. 28 team as we look ahead to 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 at Darlington, so based on our performance there, you can only imagine how good we're going to be this weekend. This is definitely a busy week for us since we test at Pocono for two days and then travel to Dover, but our whole team is really excited about this weekend. 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 team, and I'm looking forward to seeing what is in store."
