Huffman and No. 88 Navy Team Ready to Tackle 'The Monster Mile'

Shane Huffman will drive the JR Motorsports's No. 88 Navy Accelerate Your Life Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS in Saturday's NASCAR Busch Series Dover 200 at Dover International Speedway.

Saturday's race will mark Huffman's first trip to Dover International Speedway, but Crew Chief Wes Ward's 11 years of experience going to the track should help compensate for the driver's lack of seat time.

"I've never been to Dover before, so I'm not really sure what to expect. I've been watching tapes of previous races from Dover with Wes (Ward, crew chief) and he's gone over some stuff with me. Dale Jr. and I have also talked about what line to run and how the track can change during the race.

"I'm looking forward to the challenge of going to a track that I've never been to before."

"This weekend is going to be the first track we go to that Shane has never seen before. Dover is a hard place to figure out, but once the driver gets accustomed to it, it's a pretty cool place to race. It's a concrete track, so the weather doesn't affect it much, but when the rubber builds up on it the track gets pretty tight.

"I think Shane will adapt to the track pretty quickly and we'll bring home a good finish for the Navy team."
