From the Cockpit:
Matt Kenseth:
“Dover’s a tough track, especially over the last few years where it’s become a lot more difficult to pass and dirty air seems to be a little worse there. It’s a tough track, but it’s also a really fun track, and one of those places that you can really attack the entire race. Dover is definitely one of the tracks that I always look forward to and one of my favorite tracks. Obviously, it’s a lot of fun when you can get your set-up running well, but Dover is one of those tracks that you can move around a little bit and the track will widen out a bit throughout the weekend as well. Dover is just a really fast track and that also means that it’s not super forgiving, so if you happen to be off a little bit, it can definitely make your job more difficult.”

From the Pit Box:
Jason Ratcliff:
“I’d say that out of all the tracks we go to, that Matt (Kenseth) and I both equally look forward to getting to Dover. I’ve always been really fond of Dover and I know that Matt has always been as well. You would think that we would just go there and run like crazy since we like it so much, but for whatever reason, we have been fortunate enough to have run in the top five, but we just haven’t brought home the win there together yet. If you would have asked me at the start of 2013 which track would be one of the best for this No. 20 team, I would have said Dover. It hasn’t been bad for us, but I just thought that by now we might have had a few wins under our belt there. We ran well the first race and I felt it was one of our better races this season, so I anticipate a similar run for our team this weekend.”
