Jeffrey Earnhardt on Dover:
“Dover is one of my favorite tracks, and it reminds me a lot of Bristol. Earlier this year at Dover we showed some good speed, but had a mechanical issue which hurt our finish. If we can continue to excel on pit road, and keep the mistakes to a minimum I’m confident we can come out with a good finish.”
