Doug (Randolph, crew chief) and the entire team at GMS have been hard at work during the break and I’m ready to put it to the test. Dover is challenging as a driver and the transitions in and out of the corner are so drastic you need to have your set up just right. We’ve had good speed in qualifying so far this year, so hopefully we can continue that and stay out front during the race.”

I really enjoy racing there because it’s a demanding place and provides a good challenge for the drivers. It puts a lot back in the drivers’ hands, but it’s important to have good balance and some security to make speed with the quick transitions in and out of the corners. We’ve been fast everywhere this year and Jerry (Baxter, crew chief) has put in a lot of work in the shop and in the wind tunnel during the break. Hopefully we’ll be able to stay out of trouble and get victory number one of the season in Dover.”
