RACE PREVIEW: Dover International Speedway
The No. 13 Twisted Tea Camaro ZL1 will return to the track this weekend as NASCAR heads to Dover International Speedway. Riding the momentum of a stage win at Talladega Superspeedway last Sunday, Ty Dillon is ready to climb behind the wheel of his yellow and blue Chevrolet to take on Miles the Monster with a renewed confidence. It was Dillon’s second stage win of the year, the first coming at Bristol Motor Speedway, and he now has the most stage wins of any Team Chevy driver so far this season.
Finding success at Dover in the past, Dillon led 27 laps of competition in the 2017 spring Monster Energy NASCAR Cup series event. He has completed five MENCS races at the “Monster Mile.” In the Xfinity Series, Dillon has logged two top-five and seven top-10 finishes in his 10 starts. He also has two starts in the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series.
Dillon Weekend Chatter
What are your thoughts as you head to Dover International Speedway with the Twisted Tea Camaro ZL1?
“My crew chief Matt Borland and I have been talking a lot about Dover and its unique characteristics. It’s a lot like Bristol in how it’s stretched out. You’re in the corners for a long time there for it just being a one-mile track. You absolutely have to have a car that’s front end rotates well through the corner. Everyone seems to battle getting tight on the exit of the corners and snapping loose as you leave the banking, and that’s where you see most of the trouble happening. So that’s been our focus as we prepare our Twisted Tea Camaro ZL1 for the weekend. It’s definitely a monster to run, and 400 miles there is really tough.”
