Hi…I’m in Delaware
In 190 NSCS starts at Dover, Roush Fenway has recorded nine wins, 52 top-five finishes, 81 top-10 finishes and has led 3,845 laps. Former Roush Fenway driver Matt Kenseth earned the organization’s most recent win at the one-mile oval in May 2011 after starting from the 24th position and leading 33 laps.
Taming the Monster
Roush Fenway’s nine wins in the NSCS at Dover are the third most at a track for the organization (trailing only Michigan and Bristol with 13 and 11, respectively). Dover also ranks second in top-fives (52) and in top-10s (81) for the organization.
Get The Broom
Roush Fenway swept the NSCS and NASCAR XFINITY Series spring races at Dover in 2004 and 2011, and won both the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) and NSCS races there in 2006. The team will look for its third spring sweep at Dover this weekend.
First in the First State
Roush Fenway has won in all three major NASCAR series at Dover (9 NSCS, 5 NXS and 2 NCWTS). Roush Fenway won its first race at Dover in the NSCS from the pole in the fall of 1997 with former driver Mark Martin.
To XFINITY and Beyond
Roush Fenway has recorded five victories at the one-mile oval in the NASCAR XFINITY Series with Greg Biffle and former Roush Fenway driver Carl Edwards. Biffle earned victories in the spring event in both 2002 and 2004, while Edwards took the checkered flag in the spring of 2007 and swept both races in 2011.
Points in the Paint
Chris Buescher remains the championship leader in the NASCAR XFINITY Series following the race in Charlotte. Joining him inside the top 10 in the standings are Roush Fenway teammates Bubba Wallace (fourth), Elliott Sadler (sixth) and Ryan Reed (eighth).
Bubba in the Booth
Wallace will be joining the MRN broadcast team this Friday night for the NCWTS race at Dover. Coverage of the race is scheduled to begin at 5:30 PM.
