Hamlin on Racing at Dover International Speedway

"I always look forward to going back to Dover. It's a challenging race track but one I have had a good amount of success at especially in the Nationwide cars. It just seems to suit my driving style. This is a place where track position is really important because of how difficult it can be to pass. If you can get a good starting position you've won part of the battle. I'd love nothing more than to make it three in a row this weekend and get the Braun Racing guys back to victory lane. Trent Owens (crew chief) and those guys are some of the hardest working guys in the garage area and they always give me a fast race car but they just haven't had any kind of luck this season. They are due for a win and we look to make that happen this weekend in the Hass Avocados from Mexico car."
