When the Sprint Cup Series comes to the AAA 400 at the Dover International Speedway, drivers are either
trying to widen their points lead or gain ground when it counts most. Since 1971, the AAA 400, formerly known as the Dover
500, has been speeding around the high banked curves of Dover. It has a history of being one the of the hardest fought races
of the season, with famous battles including Jeff Gordon and Dale Earnhardt in 1996 and Jeff Burton with his last-minute pass
of Matt Kenseth to win it all in 2006. Jimmie Johnson holds the all-time win lead with five, as he pulled the checkered flag
in 2002, 2005, 2009, 2010 and 2013 as he continued his unbelievable streak of NASCAR dominance. Thanks to a great set of drivers
and amazing venue that is one of the best racetracks in the world, this is just one of those events that NASCAR fans tend

over the years, and Dover has become practically their back yard as they routinely put together cars that give their drivers
a shot at checkered flag glory.
