FULL ROSTER: The No. 2 Miller Lite Ford Fusion team will be back at full strength this weekend as crew chief Paul Wolfe, car chief Jerry Kelley, lead engineer Brian Wilson and competition director Travis Geisler all return from their three-race suspension. MOST RECENT DOVER WINNER: In the last Cup race at Dover, Keselowski was able to find his way to Victory Lane to score his first series victory at Dover – and the ninth of his career – in the second race of the 2012 Chase for the Championship. Keselowski also has a NASCAR Nationwide Series victory at the “Monster Mile” that came in 2009. CRUISING THE “MIGHTY MAC”: By becoming the first Michigan-born driver to win a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship, Keselowski has established himself as an icon in the state. On Wednesday afternoon, the champ will visit an iconic Michigan structure for the first time. Keselowski will drive the “Blue Deuce” across the Mackinac Bridge in celebration of his championship. In addition, the bridge – the world’s third longest in total suspension – will be lit in blue at 11:02 pm, which is nautical twilight. MEET KESELOWSKI: Keselowski will make an appearance at the Grotto Pizza located at 1159 North Dupont Highway in Dover, DE beginning at 8 pm. NATIONWIDE SERIES COMMENTARY: Keselowski will visit the ESPN2 booth for the NASCAR Nationwide Series event on Saturday afternoon. The 2010 series champion has 21 victories in that series, good for a 10th-place tie with Tommy Ellis, Harry Gant and Dale Earnhardt on the all-time wins list. HOW DO YOU RATE THE STRETCH OF RACES WITHOUT YOUR FULL ROSTER? “I was proud of the way everyone stepped up in the absence of Paul (Wolfe) and the guys. For the most part, we had a lot of speed in our cars. We missed it a bit in the (Coca-Cola) 600, and that has us in a bit of a hole in the standings. I know my guys, and we will be out with something to prove over these next few races. Paul is absolutely chomping at the bit to get back to the track. And going into Dover this weekend as the most-recent winner there gives us a little confidence too.” DESCRIBE THE RACING AT THE “MONSTER MILE” “A lap around Dover is pretty spectacular. That roller coaster feeling you get climbing and falling off the corners is amazing. I feel pretty confident going back there and I’d like to think that Dover is one of my better tracks. Paul does a superb job in making in-race adjustments, and that is very-important at Dover because the track changes drastically as rubber gets laid down. Some tracks are temperamental due to the weather, but with Dover, it’s the rubber on the track that will make you scratch your head.”
