In 11 starts at Dover and Bristol with this chassis, Stewart has three wins, seven top fives and eight top 10s and has led 1,115 of a possible 5,000 laps (22.3 percent). It is the only car he has ever run on the series' concrete tracks.

No. 27
Eel River Racing driver Rick Mast looks for his seventh start in the No. 27 Grand Prix this weekend with the chassis that last competed in the Coke 600 in Dover. Mast, who is a former pole winner here at Dover, owns five career top 10s on the one-mile high-banked oval.
