NOTES & QUOTES

* Kluever is currently 20th in the Busch Series point standings.

* The No. 06 team will be taking chassis #RK-372 to Dover. This is a new car that has not been raced or tested yet.

* Kluever has one prior start at Dover in last year's Craftsman Truck Series race.

* Kluever was the Raybestos Rookie of the Race last week at Lowe's Motor Speedway with his ninth-place finish, and the highest finishing non-Cup driver.

Todd Kluever on Dover:

"We finally got the finish we deserved at Lowe's last weekend. We really needed a solid finish. We've had some absolutely horrible luck this year. I've got to thank Mike Kelly (crew chief) and all my guys for working really hard, and thank Jack Roush and 3M. We got three new cars at the shop in the last couple of weeks that haven't been to the race track yet that I'm really excited about. We've really struggled with some cars that were kind of hand-me-down stuff that weren't as good as what some of my teammates had and I finally got what I need to be competitive and I think it showed at Lowe's on Saturday.

"We're bringing another new car to Dover this weekend that should be just as good. Dover is a tough place and things happen really fast there so hitting the set-up is very important. I've only raced at Dover once before in the truck race last year. We should have had a top-10 finish in that race, but we had to pit under green for a loose wheel which cost us three laps. Hopefully we can keep our momentum going and get another top 10 this weekend."
