Dover seems to be one of the most physically demanding tracks that you race at. What kind of stress does this track put on your body throughout 200 miles and how do you get through that stress?
“Dover has some of the highest G Forces that we experience throughout the year plus we are up on the wheel every lap. It definitely wears you out, so the biggest thing we can work on is having our arms and neck ready to take that amount of stress for 200 miles.”
