Wallace's thoughts on Dover International Speedway . . .
"Dover is a fun track and I really look forward to racing there. The season is winding down and right now our main goals are to win a race and maintain our position in the top-five in driver points. Our team has had a really good year, but a really bad past month, so we are looking to turn it around and finish the year strong. The AutoZone team is going into Dover this weekend with a great attitude and we are looking to compete for the win. The #22 car ran well in the spring race at Dover, but we definitely feel like we can improve on our 9th place finish. I was actually leading the race this time last year with eight laps to go and I ran out of fuel, so we would really like to put the #22 AutoZone Ford in victory lane this weekend."
