Dover dominated the 14th edition of the ASCS Warrior Region race last Friday at U.S. 36 Raceway near Cameron, Mo., where he was also victorious during the marquee event in 2010 and 2012.




The night opened with Dover winning his heat race from the pole position – a victory that provided a $500 bonus. That earned him enough points to advance into the feature redraw.




“I told the little girl who drew for me that I needed the No. 1 and she said, “I can do it. No problem,'” he said. “She pulled the No. 1.”




That put Dover on the pole of 30-lap feature.




“We put a good distance on them in the heat race so I didn’t do much to the car for the feature because the track didn’t change much,” he said. “We put some new tires on and some fuel in the car and went out there. We weren’t challenged. At the end I kind of paced myself.”




The victory was Dover’s fifth of the season.




After taking Saturday off to celebrate his mother’s birthday, Dover returned to action on Sunday at 81 Speedway with the NCRA. Dover piloted from fifth to fourth place in his heat race, which lined him up on the outside of the fifth row for the main event.




“I put a used right rear tire on that I probably should have thrown away,” he said. “It was blistered and chunked out. It was definitely used and abused. But starting that far back I was like why not. I just wanted to save money starting that far back.”




The tire didn’t matter as Dover powered from 10th to fourth place on the opening lap. He advanced to third place on Lap 3 before gaining the runner-up position on a restart of that lap. Dover then took the lead with a slide job in turns one and two on Lap 11.




“To be honest the first lap when I was up to fourth and the tire was actually working I knew we were pretty good,” he said.




Despite a couple of late cautions, including one that set up a green-white-checkered finish, Dover cruised to the win. It was his sixth victory of the season at his sixth different track in four states.




“It shows how strong our team is and how good our motors are,” he said.




Dover will return to action this Saturday at Junction Motor Speedway in McCool Junction, Neb., with the Nebraska 360 Sprints.








June 13 – U.S. 36 Raceway near Cameron, Mo. – Heat race: 1 (1); Feature: 1 (1).
