HARRISBURG, NC (September 15, 1998) - Of all the venues on the NASCAR Winston Cup tour, Dover Downs (Del.) International Speedway is one track that Square D Ford driver Kenny Wallace does not have on his list of favorite places.

"About the only thing I look forward to when I go to Dover is the casino," said Wallace. "At least my luck is better there."

Lady Luck certainly was not with Wallace in June at the MBNA Platinum 400. A cut right front tire on lap 32 sent the St. Louis native hard into Dover's turn three wall. He walked away from the accident unhurt, but it was still a jarring impact that left Wallace with some soreness come Monday morning.

"Even though I don't like Dover, I still drive to win because I enjoy racing," continued Wallace. "I haven't had much success there, but I still get myself pumped up to go. I have to. I'm a racer."

FILMAR Racing will again use engines leased from Robert Yates Racing for this weekend's MBNA Gold 400 at Dover. The team has been using Yates-built engines since the New Hampshire Winston Cup event.
