Miles the Monster will awaken for the first time this season as the Sprint Cup Series heads to the Dover International Speedway this weekend.
There are 40 cars entered in this week’s field, meaning all will make the race.
Jeffrey Earnhardt is the only different driver entered this weekend that did not compete at Kansas Speedway last Saturday night. He returns behind the wheel of the No. 32 car for the seventh time this season. His best result through six starts has been a 32nd at Bristol last month. Sunday will be his first start in the Sprint Cup Series at Dover.
Jimmie Johnson will look to score his third consecutive victory in the spring Dover race on Sunday. He is the all-time wins leader at the speedway with 10 victories and will aim to add another to the list this weekend.
Danica Patrick‘s car will feature both Nature’s Bakery and Autism Delaware this weekend. Autism Delaware is the organization to which Tony Stewart donated the $35,000 that the Drivers Council collected to pay his fine last month, and the beneficiary of Sunday’s AAA 400 Drive for Autism.
Cars are on-track for the first time on Friday for opening practice at 11 a.m. and qualifying at 3:45 p.m. (all times ET). Saturday will feature two practices, the first at 9:30 a.m. followed by final practice at 12:30 p.m. Coverage of Sunday’s AAA 400 Drive for Autism begins at 1 p.m. on FS1.
