From the Cockpit: “Dover is unlike any racetrack we visit all season. It’s super-fast, high banked and really a ton of fun to drive. The track is really aero-sensitive, so we will have to try and stay on top of the changes all afternoon. I’m really excited to run our Rheem-Comcast Salute to Service Camry this weekend. Hopefully we can go out, put a good run together, build some momentum heading into the off weekend and come away with a Monster Trophy at the end of the afternoon!” - Christopher Bell
