What is your outlook going to Dover this weekend?

“Dover is a place I feel really good about. Ever since I have been working with Chris (Gabehart, crew chief), we have been really fast at Dover and been in contention for wins every time we go. I expect us to go there this weekend with the same mentality and if we can execute throughout the race, we’re going to have a really good shot to lead laps and win the race.”
