Matt Kenseth: “Dover has always been my favorite track, but it’s been a long time since I’ve competed in a Nationwide Series race there. I’m looking forward to getting back into our No. 18 this weekend and getting to race twice as many miles than I normally would at Dover. I love the layout of the track, how fast the racing is, and actually just everything about Dover. Certainly watching how well the JGR cars have run there in the past makes me excited to get there and to get out on track this weekend.” Matt Lucas: “Dover is definitely my favorite track on the circuit. To watch the cars go around the track is just incredible. My favorite viewing position, of any track that we go to, is the pedestrian bridge we walk over to get in and out of the track. Usually there’s always something racing on the track, and just to watch those guys come barreling through off the turns just gives you a sense of appreciation for what the drivers can do at Dover. We sat on both poles last year and had very competitive cars, so there’s no reason that we shouldn’t be able to have similar success this weekend as well with Matt (Kenseth) behind the wheel.”
