The No. 29 Budweiser Chevrolet team will utilize chassis No. 299 from the Richard Childress Racing NASCAR Sprint Cup Series stable. In March Harvick raced his way to Victory Lane at Auto Club Speedway in this car after starting from the 24th position. The team also utilized this car at Las Vegas Motor Speedway in 2010 and Harvick drove it to a second-place finish there after starting 34th.
Kevin Harvick discusses Dover International Speedway: The next two races will be important to learn for the Chase. “With Dover and Charlotte, you need to know where you have to be when you come back for the Chase. So these are important weeks for us to put the notebooks where they need to be and have a good understanding of the things that we need to do when it counts.”
What does it take to be successful at the Monster Mile? “Dover is one of those places as a driver that feels really fast. With these kinds of cars, it seems like the forward drive off the corner is the most important thing, but you still have to make your car turn in the center of the corner. As a driver, the car has to be comfortable to be really aggressive. It’s just a fine balance for everything.”
