NOTES:
The Buckle Up 200 at Dover International Speedway is the 12th race on the 2014 Nationwide Series schedule.

There have been 60 Nationwide races held at Dover, including one event per season from 1982-85 and two each year since then.

Joe Ruttman won the inaugural Nationwide race at Dover, the Sportsman 200, on May 15, 1982.

Joey Logano holds the record for most Nationwide victories at Dover with four. Logano won both races there during the 2012 and '13 seasons. He became the seventh different driver in series history to win four races in a row at the same track.

Todd Bodine, Kyle Busch and Carl Edwards have won a Nationwide race at Dover three times each. Bodine and Busch are entered in this weekend's race there.

Joe Gibbs Racing has the most car owner wins in Nationwide races at Dover with seven.

The Nationwide race winner at Dover has started from the pole seven times. Logano most recently did it last September.

Since NASCAR began using electronic timing and scoring in 1993, the closest margin of victory in a Nationwide race at Dover occurred on Sept. 19, 1998 when Matt Kenseth beat Kevin Grubb to the finish line by just 0.146 seconds.

Two drivers entered in this race made their Nationwide debuts at Dover: Logano (May 31, 2008) and Ty Dillon (June 2, 2012).

No driver on the entry list has scored his first career Nationwide win at Dover.

The next Nationwide race takes place on June 14 at Michigan International Speedway.
