This will be Kluever's third start at Dover. He has one previous Busch start in June, and one start last year in the Craftsman Truck Series.

Todd Kluever on Dover:

"Dover is a really exciting track. You drive really hard into turn one and the track drops away from you. It almost feels like you are driving off a cliff and you land down at the bottom and the car has a tendency to be really tight in the center of the corner. You have to let the car rotate and get it pointed straight off the corner because the walls at Dover seem to jump out and grab you. The cars want to get real loose there and slap the outside wall. The acceleration down the straightaways isn't very big at Dover since you carry so much speed off the corner. Getting off the corner is important and then getting into turn three is kind of the same as turn one, but not as dramatic. There are some bumps in turn three that make the car chatter and upset it a bit when it bottoms out. The center of turns three and four is a lot like one and two.

"It's a really fast place and you carry a lot of speed through the corners. It's generally a place that a lot of drivers like."
