One Year Ago

Stenhouse Jr. on racing at Dover:
“Dover is very unique track because of the way you drive up out of the corners. The concrete eats away at the tires so the key is to take care of your tires on the long runs. We started the year strong, but we have struggled the past couple of weeks. This race usually comes down to strategy. We are looking to have a smooth weekend and hopefully leave with a solid finish.”
