Brad Keselowski on racing at the "Monster Mile"

"I don't think Dover gets the recognition that it deserves. It's a nasty racetrack and I mean that in a good way. Very few tracks are as physically demanding as Dover. It's hard on both the drivers and equipment. At no point during the race can you just log laps because, if you aren't racing another driver, you are making sure that you keep your car out of the wall. For that reason, Dover is one of my favorite tracks. I was able to win there last year and we are running well enough that we can win this week, too."

Crew chief Paul Wolfe on Dover International Speedway

"When I was driving I always looked forward to going to Dover. I had some decent runs there over my years as a driver. I was probably more of a fan of Dover behind the wheel, though, than I am as a crew chief. It's an awesome racetrack, but it can give you fits. It's really demanding on your equipment. They call it the 'Monster Mile' for a reason. In Brad we have a driver that loves the challenge of racing at Dover, so if I do my job and give him a capable car, I'm confident he can win again."
