“Dover is a great race track. It’s a concrete surface, which is something that has obviously been very kind to us here lately. It’s a fast track, and every time you drive off into the corners, it’s equivalent to the height of a one or two-story building. It’s a place where you’re never able to relax. Even the straightaways are very demanding at Dover.”
Justin Allgaier, No. 12 Verizon Wireless Dodge Charger

“Dover and Bristol are alike and different in several ways. They are alike in the sense that they both have elevation changes, and both are concrete tracks and have a lot of banking. Probably the biggest difference between the two is the way that they take rubber. They take rubber so differently that it changes the groove throughout the race. Dover is also a bit faster and the track is a bit rougher than Bristol, especially since it was resurfaced not long ago.”
Brad Keselowski, No. 22 Ruby Tuesday Dodge Charger

“Dover is an awesome race track, but it can give you fits. It’s really demanding on your equipment. They call it the ‘Monster Mile’ for a reason. In Brad, we have a driver that loves the challenge of racing at Dover, so if I do my job and give him a capable car, I’m confident he can win again.”
Paul Wolfe, crew chief, No. 22 Ruby Tuesday Dodge Charger
