Wimmer on racing at Dover Downs International Speedway--

"Dover is a great track," said Wimmer. "It's a really unique track and it definitely seems to suit my driving style. We picked up a win there in the Busch car and have run pretty well in all our races. I don't think we've finished outside the top 15 in either the Cup car or the Busch car. So, I'm really looking forward to this weekend. We need to stop getting run over from behind and have a good finish for the CAT team."

Stoddard on this weekend's race in Dover--

"We were very fortunate to get a top-10 finish out of the last race in Dover," said Stoddard. "We were really loose to start, but we adjusted on the car and by the end of the race we were plenty competitive to run in the top 10. But, we started in the back and by the time we got handling decent, Robby Gordon ran us up the track and we slid all the way back to the end of the pack, giving up several spots. We'll start the weekend with a similar setup to where we finished in June and see where it goes from there. We should be plenty competitive this time around."

Cat equipment for the MBNA America 400--

Wimmer and the No. 22 Caterpillar team are taking car #72 to Dover Downs International Speedway, the same car the team raced at Bristol Motor Speedway and Dover Downs in June.

Cat team news--

Wimmer and the CAT team plan to test at Martinsville Speedway on October 5-6 in preparation for the race on October 24. In his first outing, Wimmer ran just outside the top 10 all day until an alternator problem ended the promise of a good finish. Martinsville Speedway has long been known as a tough track to get around.
