Hines Starts 20th in Dover NCTS Event

Dover, Del. - Tracy Hines will start the No. 88 Menards/Microtel Chevrolet from the 20th position in tomorrow's MBNA America 200 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series race in Dover, Del. Hines' fast lap of 23.962 seconds translates to 150.238 miles per hour around the high-banked one-mile concrete oval. Carl Edwards starts the event from the pole with a lap of 23.456 seconds/152.892 miles per hour.

"We have a decent starting spot," Hines said after qualifying. "We'd like to be closer to the front, but it's a 200 lap race. That is plenty of time to get to the front. I've never been here before, but it's pretty obvious you are going to need to stay out of trouble to get to the end. We want to keep our nose clean, run all 200 laps, and come out of here with a good finish."

The MBNA America 200 from Dover International Speedway will be broadcast live on Speed Channel, starting at 4 P.M. Eastern. The race will also be broadcast live on select MRN Radio affiliates and on NASCAR Radio 144 on XM Satellite Radio.
