Dover International Raceway, Sunday, Oct. 1

  • Race three of three in the Round of 16. The playoff field will be cut from 16 to 12 at the conclusion of Dover’s race.
  • Jamie McMurray currently stands 11th, nine points ahead of the cutoff (13th).
  • In 29 races at the Monster Mile, McMurray has recorded two top-five and eight top-10 finishes. However, McMurray has three top-10 finishes in his last five starts at Dover.

“If we can match our effort from the first race at Dover this season, I think we will be in pretty good shape with the playoff situation,” said McMurray. “We didn’t qualify great, but we raced to a top-10 finish. This track demands your attention at all times with the speeds that we run into the corners. It is also a tough place for our pit crew with a very narrow pit road, everyone has to be on their toes. There isn’t much time to let your guard down. I think that makes it a lot of fun and gives it a lot of character.  When your car is good, Dover is a lot of fun, but if you are off just a little bit, it makes for a long day.”
