Brett Moffitt | No. 34 Dockside Logistics Ford

"I love Dover. I've had a lot of success there in the past. I had two wins in the K&N Series there, and then last year I made my debut there in the Cup series and finished 22nd after starting 18th. So, it's a track I always look forward to going to."

"It's definitely physically and mentally demanding. It's a long race -- not as long as the 600 -- but it's more demanding. There's really no time to rest. The straightaways are so short and the corners are long and sweeping and fast."

JUST THE FACTS: Sunday's FedEx 400 will be Moffitt's second Sprint Cup start at Dover International Speedway ... The 22-year-old made his Cup debut at the "Monster Mile" in June last year, finishing 22nd ... The Dockside Logistics colors return to the No. 34 Ford for the Dover race.

Cole Whitt | No. 35 Front Row Motorsports Ford

"I like Dover. It's exciting and it's fast. I think it's one of the more demanding tracks. You actually have to try not to push too hard at the beginning and wear yourself out. You just want to try to stay consistent the whole race, because if you slip there, there's really no room to gather yourself together. It's pretty much if you make a mistake there, you're done. But, at the same time, I like that. It's a fun track."

JUST THE FACTS: Whitt has three Sprint Cup career starts at Dover International Speedway ... His best finish is 27th (2013 and 2014).

David Gilliland | No. 38 The Pete Store Ford

"Dover is one of my favorite tracks. It's really, really fast. You have a huge sensation of speed there. For a mile track, you definitely know you're getting with it. You can run up high and make some passes and keep carrying your momentum. It's a track that we've run well at as an organization, so we're looking forward to going back there. I think Donnie (Wingo) has got some good stuff to try and work with there, so I can't wait."

JUST THE FACTS:  Gilliland has 17 Sprint Cup starts at Dover International Speedway ... He has two top-20 finishes at the one-mile oval ... His best finish is 16th (2008) ... The Pete Store returns as primary sponsor of the No. 38 ... The Peterbilt dealer group has a location in nearby Seaford, Del.
