"Dover just seems to suit my driving style. It's another one of those one-mile tracks that I like so much. Some teams set up their cars to run around the top of the track because there are two grooves to race in at Dover. I still believe the fastest line around the 'Monster Mile' is around the bottom."

--Buckshot Jones, driver of the No. 00 Cheez-It Chevrolet

The Equipment...

The Buckshot Racing team will be utilizing the same car last raced at Darlington in early September. The team was very pleased with how well the Ronnie Hopkins chassis responded to adjustments at Darlington. Saturday's MBNA.com 200 will mark just the second time Buckshot Jones has competed with a Ronnie Hopkins chassis.

Hunting Season Opens...

Buckshot spent part of his off weekend hunting quail in Alabama with some friends and family.

Challenges At Dover...

"One of the toughest parts to racing at Dover is getting the car set-up where it will turn all race long. Even though the track is concrete, as the race goes on the track gets tighter and tighter. Teams are also faced with a pit road that is narrow and contains small pit boxes. Factor in there are normally a lot of crashes and very little room to avoid them and you usually end up with a pretty entertaining race."

--Gary Cogswell, crew chief of the No. 00 Cheez-It Chevrolet
