SAUTER DOVER QUOTES:
On his experience driving at Dover International Raceway "Last race at Dover we were terrible. We fought the same loose handling condition we had at Charlotte and Darlington this season. Those three tracks are the ones where I am really trying to improve. We got a better handle on it the second time around at Darlington, and I expect we will make the same progress in our second try at Dover.
What will make the difference this time around at Dover? "First off, we are bringing a completely different car. Bobby (Bakeeff) has made some chassis adjustments. The car has a better body and improved roll center."
What is unique about driving at Dover? "You attack Dover more than you drive it. Dover is not about being smooth and having finesse. You are hard on the gas, hard on the brakes, and hard into the turns."
On driving the No. 71 Dave Marcis Auto Racing Chevy again this weekend at Dover "We are bringing a different car to Dover so that should be an improvement. I know more about the program that Dave has now too. His program is in survival mode right now and he needs me as a driver to make the most of what he has, and hopefully we can get something going."
