Stenhouse, Jr. on racing at Dover International Speedway:
“Dover is one track that really suits my driving style. The track is fast but also very challenging. The turns are unique because of the way you drive up out of them. I am running double-duty this weekend so that is going to be a lot of fun. Rancher’s Reserve/Safeway will be on our No. 6 Ford for both races. The championship battle is very tight so we need a strong finish at Dover this weekend.”
Crew chief Mike Kelley on racing at Dover International Speedway:
“Dover is one of the tracks that we go to with a concrete surface which is tough on our cars. Earlier in June, our Mustang was strong so we are bringing the same chassis back for another shot at the win. The track changes a lot during the race so we will just have to keep tweaking on our No. 6 Rancher’s Reserve/Safeway Ford Mustang. Dover has one of the coolest trophies so we hope we are taking it home after the race.”
