Kenseth on racing at Dover International Speedway:

“Dover is my favorite track on the Sprint Cup circuit, and it’s been a place where we’ve had a lot of success at as well, so I just love racing there.  The track is so fast and challenging, and it’s unique because of the way you drive up out of the turns. The turns sit a bit lower than the straightaways and you can feel it when you’re driving out there.  We’re just going to continue to try and put ourselves up front and into position to be able to be consistent each and every week for our Best Buy team.”

Crew chief Jimmy Fennig on racing at Dover International Speedway:

“Dover is Matt’s favorite track and that always gives us motivation heading into the weekend there.  Last year we had two great finishes at Dover with a win and a top five, so I’m looking for similar results this weekend.  Dover is a fast and high-banked track, but with Matt’s past success there, we plan to have our Best Buy Ford set up to give Matt everything he needs for a great weekend.”
