Carl Edwards on racing at Dover International Speedway:
“We have had a lot of success at Dover. Our Fastenal team has been working real hard to make the cars faster and we feel like Dover is going to be a real great race track for us. I really enjoy the Nationwide cars there and It’s a great track for me. We feel like this is the week we can start gaining some points on the leaders and close the gap in the championship standings.”
Crew chief Drew Blickensderfer on racing at Dover International Speedway:
“Dover is really different than most tracks that we have gone to so far this season. Carl is working really hard on running as fast as possible. We need to keep the energy going this weekend to get our Fastenal Ford into victory lane. After a decent run with this car at Bristol earlier in the season, I’m hopeful that with the tweaks that we have made we can run stronger at Dover.”
