Dover Dialed In For ASCS Shootout and Knoxville Opener

SPRINGFIELD, Neb. (April 17, 2008) -- Following his Ice Breaker Challenge feature win at Eagle Raceway on Saturday, April 5 and a pair of top ten finishes in ASCS Sooner Region action last weekend, Jack Dover is dialed in for the Third Annual ASCS Midwest vs. Northern Plains Shootout at Nebraska Raceway Park's I-80 Speedway this Friday.

Following the race at I-80, Team Dover Motorsports will return to their shop in Springfield and remove the Eckley Racing Engines 360 and drop in a 410 for the season opener at Knoxville Raceway on Saturday night. Dover competed as a rookie in the 410 division in 2007 at Knoxville and finished 14th in the Championship Cup Series. Team Dover Motorsports owners Marc and Lori Dover were presented the Knoxville Raceway 410 Car Owners of the Year at the awards banquet in 2007.

Dover began his Sprint Car racing career at I-80 Speedway in the 305 division in 2005 at the age of 15. In August of 2007 Jack claimed an ASCS Midwest region feature win at the 4/10-mile oval, his first ASCS victory. This season Dover picked up his second ASCS win taking the Gulf South Nationals at Houston Raceway Park in Baytown, TX, on March 1.

"We had a great run at I-80 last August and hopefully we can be better this year." Stated Dover. "I enjoy racing at I-80 and I'm looking forward to Friday night and hope the weather cooperates."

Nebraska Raceway Park's I-80 Speedway is located in Greenwood, NE, between Omaha and Lincoln off I-80 at exit 420, then 0.4 mile north on SR 63. Racing action gets underway at 7:00 p.m. on Friday night.

Knoxville Raceway is located in Knoxville, IA, thirty miles southeast of Des Moines. From south Des Moines take the Highway 5 bypass to the Knoxville exit which will take you through the city of Carlisle. Follow Highway 5 to the first Knoxville exit (if ongoing road construction exists take the Highway 14 exit then turn left at that stop). >From the first Knoxville exit proceed on what is Pleasant Street turning left at the first stop light onto Highway 14/Lincoln Street. The track is about 3-4 blocks to your left.
