Stenhouse Jr. on the FedEx 400:

“I always look forward to racing at Dover. Dover is a tough track hence the nickname ‘Monster Mile’. The turns are unique because of the way you drive up out of them.  It is important to qualify well and stay up front because track position is so important. This is Nationwide Insurance’s last time on our car so it would be great to get a top-10 finish this weekend for them.”

Mike Kelley on the FedEx 400:

“Dover is a unique concrete track that is tough on our cars. Track position is crucial because it is easy to go a lap down so the key is to stay up front and execute on pit-road. Roush as a company has been strong at Dover so hopefully we can get another top-10 finish this weekend.”
