Looks like they will get the race in today as the weather forecast has a 0% chance of rain this afternoon. So with that out of the way, let's talk about the race.

I like Dover, actually it is one of my more favorite tracks. It wasn't always that way, but the track has grown on me over the years. Maybe because it isn't a cookie cutter D-shaped oval, but I think it is more than that.

Dover has a reputation as being s 'self-cleaning' track in that when a wreck happens all the carnage ends up at the bottom of the track near the inside retaining wall - similar to a toilet boil flushing! And having the Nationwide Series racing here today I would expect a lot of washroom breaks! (Ha, I crack myself up!)

Starting line-up is after the jump, see you on the other side!!
