John Andretti on Dover International Speedway ... "Talladega should be an interesting race. We didn't draft when we tested the Car of Tomorrow (CoT) there. However, the car seemed more stable, so much so that you can't quite seem to 'bump' or move someone over. The pack will be bigger and it will be harder to lose the draft. That said, everybody will be talking about the 'big one.' I just hope that we aren't in it."
