NASCAR DFS: Drydene 400 Track Breakdown
Matt Selz has the full track breakdown and Hot Pass for this week's race -- the Drydene 400 at Dover International Speedway.
Well hello there Miles the Monster. We’re back to race at Dover this week and it’s high banking and concrete that can wreak havoc on those drivers that miss their spots by even the smallest of margins. Known as the Monster Mile, Dover International Speedway is just that, a one-mile track that is hosting it’s 100th Cup race this weekend for the return trip since May. This is the first race of the Round of 12 in the playoffs and serves as a great place to try and get a win before the chaos of Talladega unfurls next weekend. Don’t be fooled though, this isn’t a tame track, as the nickname and the huge concrete sculpture of the mascot might suggest, as the tight lines and the narrow racing surface don’t leave a lot of room to avoid incidents and there have been a fair share of “big ones” here too, especially on restarts.
