I got a 306 score. I have a ton of B and C to pull me out.

The A drivers I don’t really worry about. Just put a top qualifier and a top winner together.

I will use Burton this week FYI.

Goodyear held a confirmation test at Dover on May 6-7 . . .

Dunkin’ Donuts named official coffee of Dover:

Dover International Speedway and Dunkin’ Donuts have announced a new partnership that names Dunkin’ Donuts the official coffee of the track, beginning with the May 30-June 1, 2014 NASCAR race weekend at the Monster Mile.

With DD Perks, Dunkin’ Donuts guests earn five points for every dollar they spend on qualifying purchases at Dunkin’ Donuts when they pay using an enrolled Dunkin’ Donuts Card, either plastic or via the Dunkin’ Mobile App. Once a member accrues 200 points, he or she receives a coupon for a free medium beverage of choice, redeemable at participating Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants.

To enroll in DD Perks and for complete details about the program, visit www.ddperks.com/philly.

As part of this partnership, Dunkin’ Donuts will kick off race weekend with the chance for fans to earn an extra 50 points when they register for DD Perks using the promo code “DOVER.” Fans can also sample Dunkin’ Donuts coffee and have fun at the Dunkin’ Donuts Photobooth and display in the FanZone, located just outside Turn 4 of the track throughout race weekend.(Dover Speedway)(5-28-2014)

Dover names Nationwide race sponsor:

The Delaware Office of Highway Safety and Dover International Speedway have teamed up for the “Buckle Up 200 presented by Click It or Ticket” NASCAR Nationwide Series race, set for 2 p.m. on Saturday, May 31, 2014.

Throughout the May 30-June 1, 2014 race weekend at the Monster Mile, the Delaware Office of Highway Safety (OHS) will promote and educate fans on the importance of wearing a seat belt on every trip and the ramifications that come with failing to do so. The Click It or Ticket program, now 14 years old, is a national seat belt enforcement campaign aimed at saving lives by enforcing seat belt laws and ticketing motorists who fail to buckle up. OHS conducts year-round seat belt enforcement with state and local police agencies in Delaware, which is directed toward high crash locations and scheduled during times of the year when unrestrained crashes peak. This enforcement is coupled with several education and outreach activities throughout the state, including partnerships with schools, corporate agencies and little league organizations, as well as the “Buckle Up 200 presented by Click It or Ticket” with Dover International Speedway.(Dover Speedway)(5-20-2014)

It was real “run what ya brung” racing, and it was devoid of the gratuitous bumping, rubbing and crashing.

Many or most were owner/driver-built, production platform cars as well.

You’re overthinking this.
Just haul @ss to the Glen for Nationwide.
Lay down in the sun.
Close your eyes.
Listen to the rumble.
