With an encouraging race at Kansas Speedway last weekend in the rearview mirror, Brian Scott and the No. 44 ACME/Shore Lodge team head to the "Monster Mile" ready to take on the one-mile speedway this weekend. Dover is another favorite track for Scott, and one he has found success at in the XFINITY and Camping World Truck Series - including the first win of his stock car racing career.
In 12 starts in the XFINITY Series at Dover International Speedway, Scott has one Top-Five finish (third in the Spring 2012 race), and five Top-10 finishes. Scott also has a win in the Camping World Truck Series at Dover from 2009, the first win of his career, after starting third. Scott raced in the spring race at Dover last year in the Sprint Cup Series but finished 38 after a wreck ended his day early.
ACME Markets will join Shore Lodge on the hood of the No. 44 Ford Fusion for Scott this weekend, adding to the list of Albertsons Companies banner stores represented this season. ACME Markets has been servicing customers in the Northeast for more than 125 years and currently operates 110 stores throughout Philadelphia, New Jersey, Maryland and Delaware.

"Dover is definitely a fun place; you get different sensations at Dover than you do anywhere else. You definitely feel like you fall into the corner, then you really load up like you're hitting a corkscrew on a roller coaster where you really get flung into it, like a high bank on a roller coaster. Then, you feel like you jump and pop out of the corner, and you're only calm for about a second. Then, you're falling and driving into another corner. It's one of my favorite tracks and so unique and different. It's concrete, high-banked and a true oval - truly like nowhere else we race at."
