NASCAR Cup Series Heads to Dover, the Monster Mile

After three drafting style tracks in the first 10 races, the NASCAR Cup Series moves to some of its unique tracks in the next stretch of races. The series heads next to Dover, the 1-mile banked concrete track known as the Monster Mile. Here’s a look at where things stand for each Cup organization heading into the 11th race of the season:

Keselowski’s Talladega Success Comes at Teammate Buescher’s Expense

Brad Keselowski’s recent success at Talladega Superspeedway has been bittersweet, with the RFK Racing driver knocking teammate Chris Buescher out of a NASCAR Cup Series playoff spot. Keselowski’s second-place finish was his second consecutive top-two result and fifth top-10 in 10 races. However, he admitted frustration at not securing the win, with Tyler Reddick claiming the victory and moving into the playoffs. Both Keselowski and Buescher remain winless but have shown potential for top results. With nine playoff spots still up for grabs via points, the duo will be eager to secure a race victory in the upcoming Würth 400 at Dover International Speedway.

Erik Jones Sidelined for Dover, Corey Heim to Make NASCAR Cup Series Debut

Corey Heim will replace Erik Jones in the No. 43 Dollar Tree Toyota Camry XSE for this weekend’s NASCAR Cup Series event at Dover Motor Speedway. Jones suffered a compression fracture in a lower vertebrae in a wreck at Talladega. Heim, one of Toyota’s most talented prospects, will make his Cup Series debut, having finished all seven races in the top-10 in the Craftsman Truck Series this season. While there is no timeline for Jones’ return, Legacy Motor Club will apply for a waiver to still qualify for the playoff race.
