Friday night kicks off the start to the race weekend at Dover International Speedway with the Camping World Truck Series. Johnny Sauter will roll onto the “Monster Mile” tonight leading the point chase.
One of the new changes to the points system for 2011 is that the drivers now have to pick which series they would like to score points in towards the chase. The 18 of Kyle Busch has won three times in the Camping World Truck Series this season, one of which Kasey Kahne piloted the Z-Line Designs Toyota to victory lane while Kyle vacationed with his wife.
If you take a look at the stats, Jimmy Johnson seems to be the guy to beat this week for the FedEx 400 at Dover, which is benefiting “Autism Speaks”. Mark Martin also knows how to get around this place very well, so here are two guys that you may want as your fantasy driver pics for this week.
Dale Earnhardt Jr. needs to win this weekend at Dover to guarantee himself a position in Nascars All-Star Race at Charlotte Motor Speedway. If he doesn’t win on Sunday the fans will have to vote him in on the fan vote to make the show.
Don’t forget anything can happen with this race, Kasey Kahne was awarded the fan vote for the All-Star race in 2008 and he won the darn thing! So basically anything can happen during that event. If your favorite driver isn’t in the show. Go to the Nascar.com home page and vote him into the main event.
