MBNA RacePoints 400 - Dover Int'l Speedway >>>>

Fantasy Preview


Must Have

Ryan Newman- At certain tracks, there are what you would call ?duh? picks: there are three of them at Dover. Ryan Newman is one of these three, and the most ?duh? of them all. Where would you like me to start? The three wins in the last four races there? The four top-5s (and five top-10s) in 6 races there? The average finish there of 6.5 for his career? The fact he?s led 38% of the laps run there in the last two years? Ryan Newman?s first win of the season is lurking? and it?s going to come in the MBNA Race Points 400, as he continues his reign over the track. And oh yeah: did I mention qualifying bonus points?

Tony Stewart- This is the second ?duh? pick at Dover I mentioned, and there is a serious argument for him being the greatest ?duh? pick. The man?s record at Dover is just flat out disgusting: 2 wins, 9 top-5s, 11 top-10s, and an average career finish of 4.2 in 12 races (yes, that?s right: 12 races. He has finished in the top-10 in every race he has run there except one, and in the top-5 in all but three races). He has led more than 20% of the laps he has run there. He blanked the field in the spring last year, and if he had two more laps, he would have won it. Stewart is going to get you a top-5 or top-10, guaranteed.

Mark Martin- The final of the ?duh? picks. Mark has a nice symbiosis with Dover, as well. He?s got four career wins there (including the spring last fall), and he has always run well there. It looks like he has regained his form at the track, with an average finish of 1.5 there last year. After a great run at a similarly treacherous banked ?pure-oval? track (Darlington), look for Mark to wind ?er up and turn in another top-5 run at the Monster Mile.

Greg Biffle- What can you say about the man other than the fact that he is just on a freakin? roll or that the man can flat out wheel it? He has two Busch wins at the track, and he finished second there in his only Truck race. With the roll he is on, and after a win and another near-win on the other two treacherous banked ?pure-oval? tracks (Darlington, Bristol), look for Bug-Eyed Dummy to keep doing what he?s done so far this year at the Monster Mile.

Kasey Kahne- The kid has caught fire again, with an awesome run at Darlington and his first win at Richmond. He?s no slouch at Dover, either: as many will recall, he was leading with twilight approaching the race (on to his first win), and he wrecked. Kasey looks like he has shaken the bad-luck bug, so look for Kasey to put up another great run and contend again. And with a recent string of poles and great qualifying efforts, Kasey should produce more bonus points at Dover, where his teammate in the 19 swept the pole last year.

Jimmie Johnson- Can?t argue with the guy who once swept the season?s races at Dover. He?s got 4 top-10s in 6 career starts there. After having a strong run at the aforementioned treacherous banked ?pure ovals,? Johnson and the 48 should be in typical form at Dover.

Good Picks

Jeff Gordon- Again, you can?t go wrong by picking Flash anywhere. Period. Especially at a place where he has won four times, and where he has finished in the top-10 in 7 of his last 10 races.

Dale Earnhardt, Jr.- He used to kick butt at Dover in Busch, and he has a Cup win on his resume there. He consistently runs in the top-5 and top-10 there, and more often than not he finishes there. Dale, Jr. should be a contender at the Monster Mile.

Jamie McMurray- Someone on the board made the astute observation that ole MacMary is good on tracks that abuse tires. He?s shown it so far this year: top-5 run at Bristol (ruined by wreck), second at Texas, sixth at Darlington. He hasn?t been too shabby at Dover, either: a 10.5 average finish in 4 starts. The 42 seems to have gotten onto a little bit of a hot streak, so look for MacMary to be tough at the Monster Mile.

Matt Kenseth- Gotta like a guy at a track he says is his favorite. He wheeled it to a 6th place finish in his first career Cup race, which at Dover (driving for absentee Bill Elliot). He always runs well there, and he has been close on a number of occasions to winning. Matt should be good at his self-proclaimed ?favorite track.?

Kevin Harvick- He flat out dominated the 2003 fall race there, coming home a disappointing 4th. After his win at Bristol (a similarly treacherous banked ?pure oval,? and a concrete one at that) and his solid run at Darlington, look for Kevin to be in Fall 2003 form again at Dover.

Rusty Wallace- Back in the day when Rusty donned black and gold, he cleaned up the Monster Mile. He has three wins in his career there, and he always runs well there. He also qualifies well there: he has two poles in the last five years. Always a great Dover pick.

Jeremy Mayfield- As mentioned before, he swept the pole at the Monster Mile last year, and considering that the 19 has routinely been fast in qualifying this year, there?s no reason to believe that this will change, so have bonus points on the mind when you think of Mayfield. He doesn?t race badly at Dover, either: he swept the top-10 there last year, and he finished second to Newman in the fall 2003 race.

Carl Edwards- He ran rather well at Dover in Trucks, winning the pole and leading a lot of laps in the 2004 race. After a great run at the other Monster D (Darlington), look for Edwards to be strong again at the Monster Mile in a car that finished fourth with Jeff Burton in the Spring race last year.

Dale Jarrett- Here?s a nice ?Mr. Reliable? veteran for you. He has a win there in the 1999 Spring race, and he has scored at least one top-5 at Dover every year since 1996 (with the exception of 2003). With the crew shakeup and solid run to an 8th-place finish in the Coke 600, it looks like DJ might be headed in the right direction.

Ricky Rudd- He has always been good at Dover, with four wins at the track (I believe more there than at any other). He has the fourth best average finish amongst all drivers at Dover in the last 5 years. With a few good runs under his belt this year, Ricky should be good at what is arguably his best track.

Darkhorses

Brian Vickers- He won at Dover in the Busch Series in 2003. He qualified third for the spring race last year, and he ran up front until an accident. Vickers has shown signs of emergence this year, and at tracks where he showed a lot of strength in Busch. Look for Brian to be stout at the Monster Mile.

Scott Riggs- He got his first career top-5 finish in Cup at the Monster Mile. He also won a race at the Monster Mile in Trucks and ran well there in Busch, so Scott is a pretty good darkhorse bet for this weekend.

Scott Wimmer- This guy likes Dover. He likes it a lot. He got his first career Busch Series win at Dover, and he finished in the top-10 in the spring race last year. Considering BDR?s strength and their falling behind the curve at an exponential rate, there is a big risk factor. But this big risk could pay off with a high reward.

Avoid

Kurt Busch- He?s not a totally illogical pick, per se: he won at the Monster Mile in the Truck Series, and he finished in the top-5 there in the Fall race. But most of his runs at Dover in Cup have been ?eh? rather than ?mmm? (to reference Wendy?s new ridiculous commercials; I guess they?re a bit flustered from the finger in the food). There are much better picks for Dover, and there are much better tracks for which to pick Kurt than Dover.

Power Rankings: Dover
May 31, 2005
9:03 AM EDT (0903 GMT)



Biggest Gain this week: Ryan Newman, up seven spots
Biggest Drop this week: Elliott Sadler, down seven spots

New this week: Joe Nemechek (25).

Dropped out: Sterling Marlin (23).


Week 13 of 36, MBNA RacePoints 400 at Dover International Speedway

Rank Prev Number Driver Comments
1 2 Greg Biffle He signed a new long-term contract extension with Roush. Mainly because he aspires to be Matt Martin’s teammate.
2 1 Jeff Gordon He called it “Wrigley Stadium” while visiting Chicago to sing “Take Me Out to the Ballgame.” Then he went out and competed at Lowe’s Raceway Park in the No. 24 Dupont Dodge, which was crew chiefed by Bobby Loomis.
3 10 Ryan Newman He has qualified in the top 10 for every race this season. And for the first time this season, we avoided saying something with Rusty Wallace in it. Dang. We did it again.
4 7 Jimmie Johnson He didn’t try to knock that big Coke bottle off the car. That thing looked like it weighed more than Danica Patrick.
5 4 Tony Stewart He is coming up on a year without a victory. And a shave.
6 9 Jamie McMurray He was chewing gum during his exhibition tennis match with Anna Kournikova. You know, in case she wanted a kiss.
7 11 Carl Edwards “I'm glad to see that he (Dale Jarrett) finished eighth,” said Edwards. If he hadn’t, Edwards was planning of backflipping off the car to escape Jarrett, who would have been sprinting full-blast towards him.
8 5 Mark Martin In case you missed it last week, this is Mark Martin describing his first Cup start:
"I was freaked out that they were going to turn us green while the track was still wet, so I never turned on the rear-end cooler. And so when they did go green, my rear-end burned up in about 40 laps."

9 12 Kyle Busch A fan wrote us and said Kyle looked like Bugs Bunny with the teeth and ears. Fans can be cruel. But funny. ‘Ol Bugs is about to get that first win real soon.
10 3 Elliott Sadler His Chewbacca impression was dead-on. He sounded just like him. If he hadn’t cut his hair a few weeks back, he would have looked like him too.
11 6 Kasey Kahne Everhnam Motorsports is doing a nice thing to benefit the The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society by auctioning off Kahne’s Victory lane hat from Richmond on eBay. The team says the hat “is in excellent condition,” with “adjustable sizing.” Which means it’s not beer-strained. And a 12-year-old girl can wear it.
12 8 Kurt Busch He is really mired in a slump. Kind of like our jokes.
13 14 Jeremy Mayfield He thinks The Olive Garden is fine Italian dining. Seriously. We didn’t make that up. If you’re going to Dover, there is one on that main highway in front of the track. He’ll be there this weekend. His head is shaved and he’ll have on a red shirt. And he’ll take a take-home bag for his dogs.
14 12 Kevin Harvick You have got to wonder how hard he laughed when he saw Nemechek’s tire explode. Or sighed with relief, since he called Nemechek all but washed up.
15 16 Jeff Burton He has some cool videos on his website, but he really needs some Ward updates on there.
16 20 Brian Vickers Brian Wreckers.
17 18 Michael Waltrip Tony Eury Sr. vowed that he would settle any problems on Monday between Earnhardt Jr. and Waltrip. The shop was closed for the holiday, but fortunately, they had something called a family get-together.
18 21 Bobby Labonte His six-word in-car interview “Yeah. I am gonna try. Yeah,” was probably the second most uncomfortable on-air moment of the year, followed closely by the time Jeff Hammond wore a tux.
19 19 Dale Jarrett Report: Jarrett to retire after 2008 season, last season to be called the "Last Crew Chief Tour."
20 17 Rusty Wallace Come on, Rusty, split the car in 2006 with Mark Martin. You can even be your own crew chief.
21 15 Dale Earnhardt Jr. So it’s clear he needs to talk to Michael Waltrip and get everything sorted out. When’s their next commercial shoot? Can they get it done then?
22 25 Ken Schrader Funny thing you didn’t see at the racetrack this weekend – Schrader was actually presented with a wheelchair for his 50th birthday.
23 22 Ricky Rudd That blue-and-white car was pretty sharp, but when the engine blew, it put Rudd back into a position where he has to keep an eye on that top 35 in points again.
24 24 Matt Kenseth This is starting to get ridiculous. It is going to be hard for him to make the Chase now. His luck is officially the worst on tour. If it wasn’t for the hot wife, he’d be going crazy.
25 NR Joe Nemechek Man, that sucked. That was straight out of Super Mario Kart. Except the red shell was fired by Kevin Harvick.

Tony Stewart has finished 11th or better -- including two victories and nine top-five finishes -- in all 12 of his races at Dover International Speedway. His 4.25 average finish is the best among drivers with more than two starts there.

Driver Handicaps: Dover


Newman has three wins in six starts at Dover.

Stewart has a 4.3 finishing average at Dover.

Gordon has led 2,117 laps at Dover.



1. Jimmie Johnson (Points: 1747): Johnson won in his first two starts at Dover International Speedway after leading a combined total of 358 laps in 2002. Last year in this event Johnson posted his second DNF when he finished 32nd. In the fall he bounced back to finish 10th, to mark his fourth top-10 finish at the "Monster Mile." Overall in the five races, Johnson holds a 10.2 starting and 15.0 finishing average and has only led 37 laps since sweeping in 2002. Johnson will race primary chassis No. 48329 for the first time in competition. This car was last seen on the track last year in a tire test session at Atlanta. Johnson will also race the No. 5 Chevrolet in the Busch Series race.

2. Greg Biffle (Points: 1676): Biffle has competed in five events at Dover International Speedway finishing in the top 10 only once (seventh, 2003). He qualified fifth in his first outing at the track in the 2002 fall race. Biffle, who has a 21.4 finishing average at Dover, will race the same car (chassis RK-268) he drove to victory at Darlington last month. This car also finished sixth at Las Vegas this season. Biffle will enter Saturday's Busch Series race where he is the defending race winner.

Quotable: "As a driver, you have to be on your toes in Dover. You want your car to be a little loose but at the same time, it can't be too loose."

3. Elliott Sadler (Points: 1542): Sadler comes to Dover International Speedway understanding the importance of bringing his 'A' game. Even though he's been running at the finish in each of his 12 races at the track, Dover has not been a place where he has raced well in the past. Sadler has finished 18th or worse in his last five races at the speedway and has only posted one top-10 finish (10th) in this race in 2002.

Quotable: "I think Dover is a great race track because it is very unique in shape. Sure, it is concrete like Bristol but it is much faster which means the car will travel more and the setup needs to be close to perfection in order to run up front."

4. Ryan Newman (Points: 1530): Ryan Newman has put together a pretty impressive record in his six starts at Dover International Speedway. In the last four races, Newman has captured three wins and has led 602 laps. Last fall, Newman dominated the race leading 325 laps en route to his only win in the "Chase for the Cup." Dover is one of three tracks where Newman owns a higher average finish (6.5) than average start (8.7). His only pole at Dover came when he won from the top spot in this event in 2003. He will drive the same car (chassis PRS-41), nicknamed "Popeye", that visited Victory Lane four times in 2003, including both wins at Dover. Newman advanced three spots in the standings to fourth with his fifth-place finish last Sunday.

Quotable: "Sometimes, a track just clicks with a team. That's what happened with Dover and the Alltel team. I definitely like Dover. It's a racer's race track with the banking and high speeds. It's a lot of fun to race on."

5. Jeff Gordon (Points: 1516): Gordon is celebrating his silver anniversary at Dover International Speedway, making his 25th start this weekend. With four wins at the track, he is tied with fellow active drivers Mark Martin and Ricky Rudd for the most wins at the track. He last won on June 3, 2001. Gordon also leads all active drivers with the most laps led at "the Monster Mile" with 2,117. On a track that he considers one of his favorites, he has finished in the top-five 12 times and the top-10 16 times and has started on the pole twice.

Quotable: "We need to put together some strong runs that also include strong finishes."

6. Tony Stewart (Points: 1488): Stewart has simply owned this track since his first race in this event back in 1999. In 12 races, Stewart has posted two wins (both in 2000) and has yet to finish worse than 11th. His average starting position is 15.2, and his average finish is a stellar 4.3. He has completed 4,799 of a possible 4,800 laps at Dover, and has led 1,066 laps. Stewart will race chassis No. 100 this weekend. This car finished 17th in its first outing at Atlanta in March.

Quotable: "I like to be aggressive at Dover. It's one of my better tracks and I feel like we run really, really well there. It's a track where Zippy (crew chief Greg Zipadelli) and I feel like we have a really good package that works pretty well for us."

7. Kevin Harvick (Points: 1485): Harvick's best finish (fourth) in eight races at Dover International Speedway came in the 2003 fall race. The finish marked his only top-five and the only time he led at Dover (133 laps). Last year in this event Harvick finished 10th for his fourth top-10 at the track. Harvick will attempt to put chassis No. 120 back in Victory Lane this season at Dover. This car, which won at Bristol in April, will make its fourth start of 2005 when it takes the green flag on Sunday.

Quotable: "Dover is one of the toughest tracks we race on. I can remember watching this race on TV when they ran 500 miles. That had to be brutal."

8. Carl Edwards (Points: 1459): Last week, Edwards rejoined the top 10 in the points standings jumping five positions to eighth. He finished 18th in his first start at Dover International Speedway last fall. This weekend Edwards will be back in the Office Depot colors and will drive a brand new car (chassis RK-302) that was tested at Dover a couple weeks ago.

Quotable: "Dover is one of my favorite tracks. It reminds me a lot of driving a 1/2 mile dirt track because of the banking and the way it drives."

9. Jamie McMurray (Points: 1451): McMurray has finished in the top 10 twice in four starts at Dover International Speedway. His best finish (sixth) came in this event two years ago. McMurray, who has completed all but three laps at Dover, will race chassis No. 304 at Dover. This car most recently finished 10th at Richmond. The chassis was also used in both Dover races last season, finishing a best eighth in the fall race. McMurray will also enter his sixth Dover Busch start in the No. 64 Dodge.

Quotable: "There's a reason Dover is called the 'Monster Mile.' Things happen so quickly at that place. The track acts as a sweeper when a wreck happens, and usually collects more than one car."

10. Kurt Busch (Points: 1441): Kurt Busch heads to Dover International Speedway clinging on to his 10th-place spot in the standings. He has now been ranked in the top 10 in the standings for a series leading 47 weeks. Sunday's race will mark Busch's 10th at Dover. He finished 12th in this event last year and scored his first top-five at the track with a fifth-place finish in the fall event. Busch has led in two races for 13 laps and has posted three DNFs. Busch hopes to complete more than the opening laps when he climbs into the same car (chassis No. 66) he raced for 306 of 370 laps at Darlington last month. The No. 97 Ford will return in the Sharpie colors for the next three races.

Quotable: "It's a track similar to Bristol, almost like a bigger brother to that track being a mile in length at Dover versus a half-mile in Bristol, but our success at Bristol hasn't translated as well to Dover."

11. Rusty Wallace (Points: 1429): Wallace has posted three wins and 20 top-10's in 42 Cup races at Dover. His five pole positions currently leads all active drivers. He has completed 17,048 of a possible 19,500 laps at Dover, and has led 873 laps. His finishing average of 12.8 is ranked third among drivers that have started the last 10 races. The primary car for the MBNA RacePoints 400 is chassis No. PRS-054. Wallace most recently raced this car at Homestead-Miami in 2004 finishing eighth.

12. Mark Martin (Points: 1423): Martin is the defending event winner at Dover International Speedway. In the fall race, Martin finished second for his series leading 18th top-five at the "Monster Mile." The Viagra team will run chassis RK-231 for the third time in 2005 this weekend. This car posted top-10 finishes at Fontana (seventh) and Darlington (fourth). Last week's 28th-place finish at Lowe's Motor Speedway bumped Martin out of the top-10 in the standings for the second time this season. Martin also earned his first of 47 Busch Series wins at Dover in 1987.

13. Jeremy Mayfield (Points: 1417): Mayfield swept both pole positions at Dover International Speedway last season. His qualifying lap of 159.964 mph, set last June, still stands as the qualifying record. It was his second and third career pole at the "Monster Mile." In 22 Dover starts, Mayfield has earned four top-five's and seven top-10's. His best finish (second) came in the 2003 fall race. Last year he finished eighth and seventh respectively and led 78 laps in the June race. Mayfield will be behind the wheel of the same car (chassis No. 112) that raced at Bristol and Darlington this year.

14. Dale Jarrett (Points: 1406): Jarrett has one win (May 21, 1998) and 14 top-10's in 36 races at Dover International Speedway. He holds the best finishing average (10.6) among all drivers that have entered every race (14) since 1998. Last year he finished 11th in this event and fourth in the fall. The last time Jarrett led at lap at Dover was in the 2002 fall race when he led 14 of a track-total 545 laps. He will return in the same car (chassis No. 38) that finished sixth (All-Star) and eighth (Coca-Cola 600) at Lowe's Motor Speedway over the past two weeks. He will also race the No. 90 Ford in the Busch race for the fourth time this season.

15. Dale Earnhardt Jr. (Points: 1397): Earnhardt Jr. is making his 11th appearance at Dover International Speedway. He won his only race at the track in September 2001, in the first race following 9/11. In addition to his win, Dale Jr. has three top-five's and five top-10's at the 1-mile track. He has led in seven races for 365 laps. His best start came at the fall event in 2003 where he led 48 laps before posting a DNF. One year ago, he started 26th and raced back to finish third. The No. 8 team is bringing Michael Waltrip's chassis from last year, specially built to race at Bristol and Dover.

16. Kasey Kahne (Points: 1351): Kahne made his first start at Dover last June and appeared to be on his way to his first win until he crashed after hitting oil with 20 laps to go. In that race he started a track best 12th and finished 21st after leading 36 laps. In the fall race, Kahne finished 42nd when the engine expired in his No. 9 Dodge only 13 laps into the race. He will race the same car he qualified 10th and finished 14th with at Bristol in April.

17. Jeff Burton (Points: 1325): In 22 starts at Dover International Speedway, Burton has five top-five's and eight top-10's. His best finish of third last came at this event in 2002. Burton has only started in the top 10 once, sixth at the fall event in 1994. One year ago he finished fourth after starting 22nd. The team is bringing chassis No. 132, which wrecked this season at Bristol and took 15th at Atlanta. It will carry the Cingular Wireless GoPhone paint scheme for the second week in a row.

18. Michael Waltrip (Points: 1295): Waltrip's best finish at Dover International Speedway is a pair of fifth-place finishes with the last one coming on September 15, 1991. Overall, Waltrip has posted eight top-10's and 12 DNFs. He won his first career Cup pole at Dover on May 31, 1991. His crew chief Tony Eury Jr. led Dale Earnhardt Jr. to finishes of third and ninth last season at DIS. Waltrip will drive a brand new car (chassis No. 37) this weekend. Dover is the site of Waltrip's first career Busch Series win (1998).

19. Joe Nemechek (Points: 1226): Nemechek has put together a string of three-straight DNFs at Dover International Speedway. His best finish at the track, and only top-five, came on September 17, 1995.

21. Scott Riggs (Points: 1180): Riggs has competed in two races at Dover International Speedway. He finished fifth in the race one year ago. In the fall race, Riggs posted a DNF finishing 31st.

22. Kyle Busch (Points: 1179): Busch will make his first Cup start at Dover International Speedway this weekend. To prepare for Sunday's race, Busch will once again enter all three NASCAR events starting with the Truck Series on Friday. He has made three starts in the Busch Series at Dover finishing a best, fifth, in the race one year ago.

23. Matt Kenseth (Points: 1149): Kenseth made his first Cup start at Dover International Speedway back in 1998 when he stepped in for Bill Elliott. This weekend will mark Kenseth's 13th start at the 1-mile oval. In his previous starts Kenseth captured six top-10 finishes with his best (second) coming in this event in 2000. He will be in the same car that led 58 laps last fall at Dover, before crashing into the water barrels coming onto pit road.

24. Bobby Labonte (Points: 1143): Labonte made his first Cup Series start at Dover International Speedway on June 2, 1991. Since then, Labonte has competed in 25 races at the "Monster Mile" capturing one win (1999), three poles and 11 top-five finishes. The last time Labonte led a lap was in this event back in 2003 when he led 34 circuits of a track total 143.

27. Brian Vickers (Points: 1114): Vickers has posted two third-place qualifying efforts in his two starts at Dover International Raceway, but has yet to finish a race. Last year, he finished 23rd and led seven laps in this event. He will race the same car (chassis No. 249) that finished 16th at Darlington in its first race of the season. Dover is site of Vickers' last NASCAR win when he went to Victory Lane in the 2003 September Busch Series race.

32. Ricky Rudd (Points: 1049): Rudd leads all active drivers with 26 top-10's at Dover International Speedway. He is tied with Mark Martin with four victories and poles, and has led in 17 races for 1,019 laps. Rudd's last win came on June 1, 1997.

MBNA 400 PreQ Report


The second of the concrete tracks in the circuit, Dover International Speedway, is looming ahead for many drivers. This race marks the halfway point to the Chase for the Championship with 16 drivers still in contention but many big names on the outside looking in. Things have been getting better for the likes of Bobby Labonte but former Cup champion Matt Kenseth and DEI’s Michael Waltrip are pack in the back. The 1.0-mile track is tough on tires because of the concrete surface and Dover also has one of the most difficult pit roads in the series. There is still plenty of time for some drivers to get back in it but time is running out.

It has not been very often when a driver not in the Hendricks or Roush crews have been atop the PreQ Report, or won a race for that matter, but look out for Penske’s Ryan Newman. The #12 Alltel Dodge has been one of the best in the series in recent weeks posting three straight top 5s – and Dover is a track he loves. In fact, Newman’s last win came at Dover during the Chase for the Championship. He ranked seventh in the series last season with five top 10s in the eight speedway events but also posted three finishes outside the top 20, including a 24th place finish in the first race at Dover. Newman is a streaky racer and fantasy players need to get on the bandwagon while he is running hot.

It rarely happens when two driver’s rank close to one another in the PreQ Raw category but to see a tie atop the PreQ report is nearly impossible – yet that is what we have with Tony Stewart and Newman tied. Stewart has a pair of wins at the track compared to Newman’s three victories, but he does have a better career average finish, 4th place to 6th place, in fewer races than Newman. In 12 races at the track Stewart has recorded 11 top 10s with the lowest finish being 11th place. Stewart did have some problems on the speedways last season but two of his four top 10s did come at this track.

Much like Nemechek, Michael Waltrip has been running well but unable to finish well in recent weeks. At Lowe’s Waltrip was taken out by his own teammate in Dale Earnhardt Jr. while both were running in the top 10. At Darlington a few weeks earlier Waltrip has plenty of on track altercations with Jeff Green. When he has been able to avoid trouble he was posted some solid finishes but for some reason trouble is finding him. Waltrip runs into plenty of problems at Dover as he averages a 25th place finish since 1998. In that span, 14 races, he has posted just one top 10, which came in this race last season. Waltrip showed he can run well at the track but can he stay out of harms way?
