NASCAR rolls out of Alabama with relatively little carnage compared to what that track can often inflict. That is cold comfort to Kevin Harvick, Denny Hamlin, and Clint Bowyer who were caught up in a Lap 11 accident and had their days ruined. Nor was it a salve to Kyle Larson’s bruises after he rolled on the final lap of the Geico 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway.
Now the series comes to Dover International Speedway – the Jekyll and Hyde of NASCAR’s circuits – alternating predictability with chaos. The banks are steep and concrete. The straightaways are narrow canyons that can clog up like a pipe that has had bacon grease poured down it. While not quite as frequent, this track is host to ‘Big One’ accidents that rival Talladega. When the track is completely blocked, there is nothing to do but stop and hope the driver behind you does too.
On the other hand, this is one of NASCAR’s rhythm tracks and drivers who find that certain magic rattle off long streaks of top-10s. In the past nine years, a dozen drivers have accumulated streaks lasting as long as four races. Last year, only three drivers swept the top 10, which leaves third-year driver Daniel Suarez as the only one with a current streak of four top-10s, but the tendency is still valid and fantasy players want to look at who has dominated in the past three seasons for this week’s favorites.
Chase Elliott There is nothing like a win to raise a driver’s stock. Last week Elliott was finally in the right place at the right time. With the field gathering momentum behind him to shuffle him out of the lead, a multicar accident erupted in his rear view mirror and froze the field with him in the lead. But that’s not the victory we’re talking about. Last Fall Elliott benefited from a mistake by Harvick (who dominated most of the race) and scored his second Cup win. In six starts on this track, he’s finished worse than fifth only one time.
Martin Truex Jr. Dover is one of Truex’s hometown tracks. It’s a course that he has always loved and it seems to love him back. He scored his first Cup win there in 2007. After that, he struggled for a while to challenge for top-fives until he won a second time nearly a decade later in 2016. That kicked off a four-race streak of top-fives that was stalled last Fall with crash damage. Truex is the driver earning the most segment points (61) this year without a stage win and we think he’s due to get one in the Gander RV 400.
Daniel Suarez Suarez finally made his way into the Fantasy Power Rankings Top 10 this week and he could not have chosen a better time. He’s coming to a track that apparently suits his driving style to a ‘T’ because he has never finished outside the top 10 there. Last Spring he finished third behind two drivers who are now his teammates (Harvick and Clint Bowyer). The playing field at Stewart-Haas Racing has leveled and it’s possible that Suarez could be their highest performing driver this week.
Kurt Busch We don’t often recommend Busch. The reason for that is his track record can be spotty on a given week after he bounced around from team to team for several years. He has been incredibly solid this year, however, with a current streak of nine top-12 finishes. Three of those were top-fives – including a second-place at Bristol, which shares some characteristics with Dover. Last year while racing for Stewart-Haas, he finished fifth in both Dover races.
Kevin Harvick Harvick doesn’t often have two bad races in a row. He was swept into an accident that was not of his making at Talladega last week and has had a long time to think about Dover. He was absolutely dominant in both Dover races last year by sweeping all four stages and winning in the Spring. He almost certainly would have won the Fall race as well if not for a penalty incurred late in the going.
Jimmie Johnson At some point this season, Johnson is going to shake off the fog of the last few years and return to the semblance of his former form. He has shown a few glimpses of that in the first 10 races of this season, but there have been obstacles, mistakes, and bad luck along the way. When he is able to turn his season around, one of the first truly great runs will come on a track that he’s dominated in the past. Dover is one of six tracks on which he currently has an average finish better than 10th. He has 11 wins there with the most recent coming in 2017 while he struggled elsewhere. If he looks strong in practice and qualification, trust him for the race.
Kyle Larson At some point Larson’s luck has to turn around. And while we are way too gun shy to suggest he should have a guaranteed spot on your roster, if you are confident in the remainder of your team he deserves a place in the garage. Larson has never really struggled at Dover. He finished 11th in his inaugural run in 2014 and was 12th last Fall. Other than a battery issue and later crash damage that slowed him in 2016, those are the only times he’s finished outside the top 10. He’s come close to winning twice with second-place finishes in 2016 and 2017, so he’s worth just a little risk.
Kyle Busch This is tricky. Busch has not stumbled all year and his 10 top-10s to start the season is the best opening record in three decades. Just as Larson’s bad luck has to end, at some point Busch’s top-10 streak will dry up. He won the 2017 Fall Dover race and finished second in the two Fall races preceding it. For some reason, he has been much less productive in the Spring, however. Four of his last five editions of this race have ended 30th or worse.
Between Memorial Day and Labor Day last year, 179,389 people camped out at the thousands of campsites offered at Massachusetts’s more than 30 state parks that allow camping, according to the Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR).
“[Camping is] one of the biggest things we do here at DCR,” said Nicholas Gove, DCR’s deputy commissioner.
And we’re not just talking the pitch-a-tent, lay-down-a-sleeping-bag-in-the-woods variety. Campers in Massachusetts can choose from a wealth of experiences, from coastal to island camping, primitive camping near mountains, equestrian camping, and even staying in yurts or cabins. DCR also has plenty of accessible camping sites across the state, which means the campsites meet the requirements of state and Federal accessibility standards for disabled campers.
If waking up to water is what you desire, you can book a coastal campsite at Nickerson State Park in Brewster, Horseneck Beach State Reservation in Westport, Salisbury Beach State Reservation in Salisbury, and Scusset Beach State Reservation in Sagamore.
Folks looking for island camping (exactly what it sounds like) don’t have to go far — they can can head to Boston Harbor Islands, which are accessible by ferry or private boat, and Washburn Island, a part of Waquoit Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve in East Falmouth, which is accessible only by private boat, according to Gove.
Campers who own horses can take their four-legged friends camping with them at Myles Standish State Forest in Carver, which has accommodations for horses, as well as equestrian trails where folks can ride, Gove said.
For “hike-in camping,” a more primitive experience, campers should head to Mount Greylock State Reservation in Lanesborough, Gove said. This type of camping is more remote because, as the name suggests, you’ll need to hike to your camping spot.
“These are popular with people hiking Mount Greylock out in that part of the state, as well as people that are coming off the Appalachian Trail,” he said.
On the opposite end of the camping spectrum, if you want to elevate your camping experience, you can rent a yurt. Yurt camping means travelers sleep in a circular, domed structure with a wooden frame and heavy canvas walls. Yurts, which typically accommodate four to six people but come in sizes that can sleep 10, have bunk beds, screened windows, a skylight, table and chairs, and doors that lock. Some have electricity, but there is no heat, and campers must bring their own linens. Restrooms are located in a nearby building.
“This was kind of an experiment we started around 10 years ago, and it quickly became one of our more popular camping opportunities,” Gove said. “They’re nice because, for families, they can hold more than a couple of people, and also you don’t have to deal with setting up and taking down a tent. They also happen to be more weatherproof than a standard tent.”
Boston Harbor Islands in Boston, Myles Standish State Forest in Carver, Nickerson State Park in Brewster, October Mountain State Forest in Lee, Otter River State Forest in Baldwinville, Shawme-Crowell State Forest in Sandwich, Wells State Park in Sturbridge, and Willard Brook State Forest in West Townsend all offer yurt camping.
If you’d rather rent a cabin, which can sleep between three and 12 people depending on the size, you’ll also sleep in bunk beds. As opposed to yurts, cabins are equipped with a pellet or wood-burning stove. They come with a picnic table and fire pit outside. As with yurts, some have electricity, campers need to bring their own linens, and restrooms are located in a nearby building. You’ll find cabins in three parks: Camp Nihan Environmental Education Camp in Saugus, Mohawk Trail State Forest in Charlemont, and Savoy Mountain State Forest in Florida.
If you’re a camper who enjoys all your creature comforts from your own RV, two of DCR’s most popular spots for RV camping are Salisbury Beach State Reservation in Salisbury and Scusset Beach State Reservation in Sagamore, Gove said. Another popular spot for RV camping is Horseneck Beach State Reservation in Westport.
Campsites this season will cost Massachusetts residents anywhere from $8 for a primitive campsite to $90 per night for a large cabin or yurt. The prices increase for out-of-state campers; for example, a coastal campsite is $22 per night for a Massachusetts resident and $35 a night for an out-of-state resident.

Light aircraft Van’s RV-6 impacted pond water terrain in Clark County southeast of Daybreak Airport in La Center, Washington. Two people died in the crash and the plane suffered substantial damage.
The Clark County Sheriff’s Office said another pilot flying overhead spotted the downed propeller aircraft shortly after 4 p.m., south of the East Fork of the Lewis River. Emergency responders found the plane in a pond about two-feet deep. Sheriff’s deputies and firefighters found the single-engine propeller plane in a shallow pond. Unfortunately, the rescuers found the two occupants on board already dead.
The exact time and circumstances of the crash remain unknown.
Investigators from the Federal Aviation Administration will conduct an investigation at the site.
