Dover Int'l Speedway 200

CONCRETE FACTS: Elliott Sadler and the No. 2 OneMain Financial team head to Dover (Del.) International Speedway to battle Miles the Monster this Saturday afternoon. Sadler has six NASCAR Nationwide Series starts at the 1.0-mile concrete track with two top-10 finishes. Dover is one of only three concrete tracks on the current Nationwide Series circuit. The team has already visited the other two, Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway and Nashville Superspeedway, in 2011, earning fourth and 13th-place finishes respectively.

CHASSIS HISTORY: The No. 2 team will utilize chassis No. 064 this weekend at Dover. This is the same chassis that Sadler raced to a fourth-place finish at Bristol Motor Speedway in March. Chassis No. 064 was also the car that KHI co-owner Kevin Harvick drove to victory lane at Richmond (Va.) International Raceway last fall. No. 064 was most recently raced by Sadler at Nashville Superspeedway where he finished 13th.


How do you feel about Dover International Speedway? “Dover is a fun track. It’s concrete, has a lot of banking in it and lot of G-forces. I have a lot of starts there and I’ve learned a lot there in the Cup Series cars over the last couple years. I ran really well there last year in the Truck for KHI, so I’ll be able to use a little bit of that knowledge in the Nationwide car. It should be a good race for us. We’re going to take the same car that we ran very well with in Bristol, so we’ve got a lot of confidence in the car we’re running as well.”
