Track: Dover International Speedway
Event: FedEx 400 Benefiting Autism Speaks
Date: Sunday, June 2nd
DOVER POST RACE:
The No. 47 SCOTT® Products Toyota Camry finished 21st with Bobby Labonte behind the wheel at Dover International Speedway in the FedEx 400 benefiting Autism Speaks. Tony Stewart bested Juan Pablo Montoya for the victory by 0.788 seconds. There were 21 lead changes among 11 drivers and there were 7 cautions for 32 laps in the 400-lap event. After 13 events this season, Labonte is 28th in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver points standings. He is 133 points out of 10th place held by Paul Menard.
"Our Scott® Products Toyota became tighter during the 400-lap event at Dover," Labonte said. "We made some changes with wedge and air pressure to try to help the handling. Closing in on the last hundred laps, we were tight in the middle and loose on exit. We also had a little damage to the right front-side from an incident. At the end of the day we finished 21st."
Thanks to the SCOTT® Brand Ultimate Tailgate Vehicle Sweepstakes, JTG Daugherty Racing is pleased to announce along with SCOTT® Brand that Donnie Freeman from Louisiana is now the proud owner of a 2010 Toyota Tundra Limited Edition. There were 43,000 entries during the contest entered via Scottbrand.com and Racesavers.com. Bobby Labonte handed over the keys to Freeman on Sunday at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
Freeman's truck comes with custom graphics, five flat screen TV's, a satellite receiver, a thunderous sound system, a stainless steel grill, refrigerator, generator and sink. Congratulations to Donnie!
