Nadeau Dover notes

"Dover is a fast concrete race track that has very little forgiveness, so you have to have a lot of respect for it. If you stay on the lead lap on Sunday, you'll finish in the top-10 and that's what we're looking to do. "At Dover, you just have...

"Dover is a fast concrete race track that has very little forgiveness, so you have to have a lot of respect for it. If you stay on the lead lap on Sunday, you'll finish in the top-10 and that's what we're looking to do. "At Dover, you just have to have a car that is going to grip the race track really well. I feel like when we go back this time, the MichaelHoligan.com team has a car that is going to do that. We're taking the same car we ran at another tough track -- Darlington (S.C.) -- earlier this month. We're building a brand new concrete car for Dover and Bristol (Tenn.), but it won't be ready in time for this race so we'll save it for next year. But I think the MichaelHoligan.com Chevrolet we ran at Darlington will be a good car for The Monster Mile."

Viggy's Dining Guide -- Nadeau's motorcoach driver, John "Viggy" Vignona, is a self-proclaimed connoisseur of the restaurants near each of the NASCAR Winston Cup Series tracks. The Long Island, N.Y., native recommends Sambo's Tavern in Leipsic, Del.

"The unique thing about Sambo's Tavern is that you go in and they have a bunch of picnic tables covered with old newspapers, and they hand you a fork and a wooden mallet and you go to town," Vignona said. "What do I get at that crab shack? Is there anything else but blue claws? How many can I eat? Dozens! This time of year, blue-claw crabs are a good size, but you don't get a lot of crabmeat so you have to work for your dinner. But Sambo's still gets four steering wheels."
