Hamlin won the spring event and Busch was victorious in the fall ... Jason Leffler has recorded six-consecutive top-10 finishes heading into Saturday's race ...

Why do you enjoy racing at Dover? "Dover has been a pretty good track for me over the years. My first NASCAR win came at Dover in 2003 when I was racing in the Truck Series, so it's a special place for me. Dover is a really fun race track. It's similar to Bristol with the high banking, but it's got the feel of a superspeedway. It's easy to forget that it's only a one mile-track because of the speeds you are carrying. It's really narrow so there's not a whole lot of room to negotiate. Being able to charge hard into the corners so you can keep up your momentum on the straight-aways is really important."
