Carl Edwards on racing at Dover International Speedway:

“We have nine races left in the Chase and we are going to Dover to win this race. We are going all out 100 percent. We’re taking a new car this weekend that should be fast. I’m excited to go there. It’s a great track for me and my Aflac team. We’ve had some really good runs there including a win. For me this is one of the races in the Chase where I can make a difference as a driver.”

Crew Chief Bob Osborne on racing at Dover International Speedway:

“Although we’ve got two one-mile tracks in a row, they couldn’t be more different. I’m looking forward to racing at Dover this weekend since it’s a much better track for us than New Hampshire. We typically run much better on the banked tracks than on the flat ones. We’ve got a new car for Dover that I feel will be extremely competitive. Dover is a difficult race track to drive and Carl really excels with cars that don’t necessarily handle well an entire race. It has a lot to do with getting the most out of what you have for a race car and he does that extremely well.”

ON THE TRACK… The No. 99 team will be unloading chassis RK-705 this weekend. This is a brand new Aflac Ford Fusion.

IN THE LOOP… According to NASCAR’s Loop Statistics compiled over the last 12 races at Dover, Edwards has turned 296 of the track’s fastest laps which is fourth highest, spent 3,100 laps (70.4%) in the top 15 (seventh highest) and led a total of 297 laps (sixth highest).

REWIND, DOVER, September 2009… Edwards fought a loose condition much of the race with the team making adjustments on every pit stop to help him. A late-race stop under caution for fresh tires with 30 laps to go was just what he needed to work his way up to 11th place to finish the race.
