Ready For The Monster MileHigh Banks, Extreme Speeds and Danger Around Every Corner. That pretty much sums up Dover International Raceway! But as has been the case all year long, the Poynt.com team with Timmy Hill at the wheel looks forward to the challenge and heads into this tricky track with high expectations and excitement.
The #41 Poynt.com team will roll out the same car that ran consistant top 5 speeds at Darlington a month ago. This car is specifically designed for high bank race tracks where speeds are excessive and grip is at a premium. George Church, crew chief for the 41 car has made some changes to the car since its impressive run at Darlington to increase front end performance and keep the rubber on the road!
Although last weeks race at Charlotte Motor Speedway felt like a home track for Timmy and the crew because of its proximity to their shop, Dover really is more of a home track to Timmy and his Northeastern based family. “Dover is a cool track for me for a number of reasons. First, I grew up close to the track and remember watching Dover a lot. Secondly, I really like tough and challenging tracks like Dover. I love the combination of the high banks and speeds that Dover brings combined with the challenge of tires that wear out and a groove that will be all of the way from the apron to the safer barrier. Look for the #41 Poynt.com car to be super strong this weekend and continue our streak of top 20 finishes on the lead lap!”, stated Timmy Hill.
