Michael Waltrip will compete in his 38 NASCAR NEXTEL Cup race at Dover International Speedway on Sunday afternoon where he will look for his second consecutive top-10 run, his third top-five finish and his sixth consecutive top-10 start at the one-mile track.

This Week's Race Car is Chassis #22. The car ran three times this year securing two top-10s. Chassis #22 last raced at Bristol Motor Speedway in August finishing 27th. The car also ran as the back-up car in Dover, Delaware in June where it placed sixth and raced at Bristol in March finishing 10th. The car has not been tested or been to the wind tunnel since it last raced.

Waltrip Motivated by Cause Last week's ninth-place finish in Loudon, NH got him $19,999.00 closer to his million dollar goal for Victory Junction Camp thanks to Cup sponsor NAPA AUTO PARTS and Busch Series sponsor Aaron's Sales and Lease Ownership. NAPA donated $5,000 to Waltrip's OPERATION MARATHON Fund because the No. 15 car finished in the top-15 Saturday night. NAPA will donate $15,000 for every top-five finish, $10,000 for every top-10 finish and $5,000 for every top-15 finish in the remaining 10 races. Aaron's Sales and Lease Ownership has committed to donating $9,999 for every top-10 finish in both the Busch and Cup races.
