Do you learn something new every time you go to Dover International Speedway?
I'm not sure. I think I have a basic strategy every time we go there for how I'm going to drive the car. It works out for me that way each time I've gone there. I think it's one of our better tracks we visit every year. I know having the extra seat time running both the XFINITY and Cup Series events will definitely help this weekend, too. - Austin Dillon
