Nadeau's Thoughts on the MBNA Platinum 400:

"I really like Dover - it's probably one of my favorite tracks on the circuit. I qualified on the outside pole there last year in the fall and finished 16th.

"Dover is a tough track. As the race progresses, it becomes a two- or three-lane track. But the one thing about a concrete track like this is that if your car isn't handling well, it's going to show up even worse. Dover is really, really quick for a one-mile track. You have to be patient, keep your fenders on the car all day and stay in the lead lap to ensure a top finish at the end."
