For the second straight year, Dover International Speedway, FedEx Corp. and Autism Speaks have teamed up for the spring race weekend at the Monster Mile to bring fans the June 3 “FedEx 400 benefiting Autism Speaks” NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race. Denny Hamlin, driver of the No. 11 FedEx Toyota, will also show his support throughout the weekend.When Hamlin takes to the track for...

After races at Talladega and Darlington, where...
Dover International Speedway might not have the coolest name anymore (it used to be called Dover Downs), but it certainly plays home to the coolest drivers. Now, with today's wretched verbal joke out of the way, we move on to the power rankings for said speedway. Behold, the kings of concrete!
