Statesville, N.C. - Travis Kvapil, driver of the No. 93 Burger King/Dr Pepper Toyota, will put his road racing tactics to the test this Sunday in the Finger Lakes 355 at Watkins Glen International. It will be the second time this season that the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series competes at a venue that calls for right-hand turns. In Kvapil’s previous road course outing, his opportunity for a solid finish at Sonoma was cut short when his left-front wheel locked up on Lap 1 and forced him behind the wall for repairs. He looks to show the team’s road racing potential this weekend.
Kvapil has made seven Sprint Cup Series starts on road courses. Three have resulted in a top-25. His best performance was in 2005 at Sonoma. He started 39th and finished 21st.
He’s made three starts at Watkins Glen. His best finish is 30th place, which he achieved in 2010.
