From the Cockpit:
Matt Kenseth
: “Dover is just really unique since it’s a high-banked one-mile race track and we don’t really have any more of those around. It’s a really fast track and is really edgy, even when you’re out there by yourself, but it can get tough to pass when you get everyone out there during a race. It’s a track that you can really attack but you need to pay a lot of attention to the track changing as well as your competitors. Dover isn’t very forgiving and the elevation changes there can be challenging as well since everything can happen pretty quickly there. Dover gives me the sensation of more speed than any other track we go to and I’ve always loved that race track. We don’t have all the results there that I wish we had, but I love that track and it’s very challenging to get around there fast. I always look forward to heading to Dover.”

From the Pit Box:
Jason Ratcliff:
“For our JGR (Joe Gibbs Racing) organization as we whole, Dover has been a really good track for us. It stands out as one of the top tracks for us overall that we seem to have gotten a bit of a handle on since we generally run well there. I like our chances going back there this weekend. I thought we had a good race going in our first race there this year. We had a few things that I felt that we needed to work on, and we were able to work on those items worked out, so I’m looking forward to it. I think it’s one of our better tracks and eventually we’re going to get one there for our DG team.”
