Kenseth on racing at Dover International Speedway:

“Dover has been a good place for us in the past and it’s my favorite race track; I love going racing there.  I’m looking forward to going there and hopefully we can put in a good effort and have a fast car to get another good result and keep rolling in the Chase.  We’ll just do the best job we can every week, work as hard as we can on our cars and pit stops and hope that our results are good enough each and every Sunday.”

 

Crew chief Jimmy Fennig on racing at Dover International Speedway:

“This weekend, we’re bringing the same chassis we ran and won with at Dover back in May.  Dover is Matt’s favorite track and that gives us a lot of motivation to have another solid run there this weekend.  We were able to leave New Hampshire with a sixth-place finish at a track that has been a challenge for us in the past, so I’m looking forward to this weekend in order to help us make up some position in the point standings.”
