JOEY COULTER QUOTE:
"I am fired up for this weekend. I always love racing at Dover International Speedway because the track is insane. For the size that it is, the track makes you feel like you are going faster than we do anywhere else on the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series schedule. We have done a lot of work back at the GMS Racing shop since Charlotte Motor Speedway, and I think we are going to turn our season around this weekend.”
