JOHN HUNTER NEMECHEK QUOTE (ON DOVER INTERNATIONAL SPEEDWAY.):

“I’m looking forward to going back to Dover International Speedway this year, because it has always been a fun track for me. NEMCO Motorsports has always had fast trucks at Dover (International Speedway), but we have not always had the results we wanted, but we are really looking forward to going back. Especially after what happened last week at the Kansas Speedway, we are looking forward to a solid finish to regain our points lead. We want to run up front and contend for a win. Hopefully, we can get our first short-track victory.”
