Ryan Newman appeared to be headed to a top-five finish last week when his engine blew.
Question: Does your strategy change for Dover?
Newman: We're just going to go there with the same plan we had at Loudon (N.H.) and that's to win the race, lead the most laps and get the most bonus points possible.
