  • Truex: “This weekend we’re at Dover…home track, one of my favorites. I have a pole there and a second place so I have a lot of confidence going in. We’ve got ACME on the car so I really want to give them a good race. This is Bar Harbor and Sea Watch’s last race on the car so there’s a lot of pressure for me to go out and perform for the hometown fans. Hopefully we can do it and get this momentum back on track—we had a rough time at Talladega. So we’re going back to one of my best tracks; I have a lot of confidence in this team that we can go and perform and hopefully get us a win.”
