Tim Sauter ready for return to Dover concrete

When the NASCAR Busch Series visited the Monster Mile in Dover, DE on June 3rd it was the second race in the long "summer stretch" of sixteen straight races. Last week was the first weekend that the teams racing in the Busch Series have had time to relax and regroup since the end of May. The last month has been particularly tough on the McGill Motorsports team with several on-track incidents negating solid runs at both Bristol and Richmond.

Tim Sauter and the Lester Buildings team lead by crew chief Ricky Pearson return to the high-banked concrete track this Saturday hoping to improve on the 28th place finish in the June race at the tricky concrete surface. "We struggled early in the first race here with a tight racecar, but Ricky and the guys had the car pretty good at the end of the race," Sauter commented. "If we can pick-up where we left off, I think we can get a much better finish for Lester Buildings this weekend."

There are only 42 entries on the preliminary entry list for the Dover 200. 15 drivers are attempting the "double-duty" of both the Busch and Cup races this weekend.

Tim's thoughts on the Dover International Speedway: "I really like coming to Dover, the concrete is really challenging to race on. If you have a good car you really need to attack the track every lap. Some tracks you actually go faster by rolling through the corners, but at Dover you need to go hard to go fast. Even though it's a mile-track you need to drive it more like a short track."

This Saturday's race will be the fourth time McGill Motorsports has competed at Dover in the NBS. Best Finish: 22nd on June 4th, 2005 with Stanton Barrett driving and duplicated by T.J. Bell on September 24th, 2005.
