Dover Int'l Speedway
BOWYER GOING FOR THREE AT DOVER: The NASCAR Nationwide Series heads to Dover (Del.) International Speedway this weekend where teams will look to conquer the one-mile track known as the Monster Mile. The driver of the No. 33 Rheem Chevrolet Impala has done just that, twice. In nine Nationwide Series starts at the facility, Clint Bowyer has two wins (2009, 2006), five top-five and seven top-10 finishes. The driver has led 171 laps around the concrete oval.
CHASSIS HISTORY: This weekend at Dover International Speedway, crew chief David Hyder and the No. 33 Rheem team will unload chassis No. 069. The KHI team utilized this particular chassis at Las Vegas Motor Speedway in March with Kevin Harvick behind the wheel. After qualifying fourth, the team was relegated to a 28th-place finish due to damage sustained in a late-race incident. The No. 33 team also competed with chassis No. 069 at Nashville Superspeedway with driver Austin Dillon. The young driver made his KHI debut starting the event in the third position and brought home a seventh-place finish.
BOWYER’S THOUGHTS ON DOVER:
What are your thoughts about this weekend’s race at Dover? “I really like Dover. The banking is like Bristol but the straightaways are really fast. It has been one of my better tracks and I’m excited to be back in the No. 33 Rheem Chevy and with the KHI guys this weekend. I think if we can get the balance of the car just right and stay out of any accidents, we will be able to get this Rheem Chevy into victory lane.”
