Pre-race news and notes: Dover

Autism Speaks Loudly at Dover: The No.7 team is proudly supporting Autism Speaks this weekend at Dover International Speedway with a puzzle piece decal on the car. This marks the ninth straight year that the Monster Mile is partnering with Autism Speaks to help raise funds and awareness for the cause throughout the weekend.

In the Rearview Mirror: After welcoming aboard CULER for the Coca-Cola 600 race weekend, Alex Bowman and the No. 7 team were ready for an action packed weekend at Charlotte Motor Speedway. After qualifying p31, Bowman was able to make gains from the drop of the green flag. With solid pit stops all night and continued adjustments on the car, Bowman finished 26h and collected his fifth top-30 finish of the season.

Bowman says: “I’m looking forward to heading to Dover – it’s a very fast track and between the concrete surface and the elevation changes, it presents a lot of challenges for me as a driver.”
