2014 Dover: Team Penske NASCAR Sprint Cup Race Preview

• A MONSTER MEMORY: Brad Keselowski needed to lead only 14 laps to tame the "Monster Mile" during the fall race in 2012, as he earned his lone NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) victory at the famed concrete oval. The victory would prove to be a pivotal point in his winning the NSCS championship that season.

• MULTIPLE "MILES" WINNER: Along with his 2012 Cup Series victory, Keselowski owns a NASCAR Nationwide Series win at the Dover International Speedway. He drove to victory lane to win his first "Miles the Monster" trophy in 2009.

• HIGH SPEED ART: This weekend, the Miller Lite Ford Fusion will feature country superstar Luke Bryan on the hood. Bryan, who will be the Grand Marshall for the FexEx 400, and Keselowski will get together for some pre-race anticsSunday morning.

• MILLER LITE PIZZA NIGHT: Keselowski will appear at Grottos Pizza, located at 102 Silicato Way Milford, Del., on Thursday, May 29 at 7:00 p.m.

• NEW MAN UP FRONT: Hunter Masling will make his debut as the front tire changer on the No. 2 Miller Lite Ford this Sunday. Masling, who changes tires on the No. 22 Discount Tire Mustang in the Nationwide Series, will be a double-duty changer for Team Penske.

• ANOTHER TEST TO PASS: Keselowski and the No. 2 Miller Lite team were at Road Atlanta this week as they prepare for the upcoming road course races at Sonoma and Watkins Glen. This is the second time that Keselowski has returned to the track since his testing crash there in 2011.

• TEAM PENSKE AT THE MILE: Team Penske made its first start at Dover International Speedway in the 1972 Delaware 500 with Dave Marcis driving the No. 16 entry. Team Penske has enjoyed its share of success at the notorious concrete oval. In 84 starts, the organization has recorded eight wins, nine poles and 25 top-five finishes at Dover. Team Penske drivers have led 1,692 laps at the track.

• ONTO HIS "FAVORITE": One of the most common questions all racecar drivers get in various question and answer sessions seems to be "what is your favorite racetrack?" And while Joey Logano normally answers with the track he’s currently at, deep down Logano will say that Dover holds a special place in his heart as his "favorite" track on the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) schedule. And while most people remember Logano’s end-over-end barrel roll at Dover in 2009, Logano will point to top-10 finishes in his last four NSCS starts at Dover as the highlights he remembers most from his favorite track.

• DOVER DOUBLE DUTY: Logano will again run double duty in Dover, as he returns to the seat of the No. 22 Hertz Mustang in the NASCAR Nationwide Series this weekend at the Monster Mile. In fact, Logano will run double duty in four of the next six NSCS weekends, including Dover, Michigan, Kentucky and Daytona.

• TESTING & GOLFING: There is no rest for the weary, including Logano, leading into the Dover race weekend. On Tuesday, Logano tested with his No. 22 Shell-Pennzoil team and Team Penske teammate Brad Keselowski at Road Atlanta in preparation for the upcoming road course race at Sonoma. Logano will then fly to Dover early to participate in the Drive for Autism Golf Tournament on Thursday afternoon with crew chief Todd Gordon.

• MICHIGAN BOUND: After returning from Dover, Logano will take part in his first of several NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Victory Tour appearances on Tuesdayafternoon. Logano will fly to Michigan and meet with members of the Detroit Lions team at their practice facility in Allen Park, Michigan. Logano will also be part of a "radio takeover" with track president Roger Curtis on 101 WRIF.

• SERIOUS NATIONWIDE SUCCESS: While Logano has reeled off four-straight top-10 finishes in NSCS competition at Dover, his success record in the NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) is unmatched. Logano has won the last four NNS race at Dover, sweeping both races at the track in 2012 and 2013. In those four races, Logano has led a total of 510 of the 800 laps run. Sponsor Hertz has also experience tremendous success, winning all six of the races last season where they ran the Hertz yellow paint scheme.
