Jeffrey Earnhardt on Dover:
“I’m happy to be returning behind the wheel of the No.32 CorvetteParts.Net Ford this weekend for Archie and GFR. Dover is such a fun track, and reminds me a lot of Bristol where we ran pretty well earlier this year. I’m confident we can come out with a good finish as long as we keep the mistakes to a minimum.”
