CONCORD, NC (September 19, 2001) -- In light of the recent tragedy American has suffered, NASCAR Winston Cup Series Sponsor DEWALT Power Tools has made some changes to the paint scheme of the No. 17 Ford driven by Matt Kenseth.

The car will bear the American Flag on the truck lid and quarter panels. The traditional DEWALT on the TV panel will be replaced with "God Bless America." Crewmembers will wear hats with the American Flag embroidered on each side.

"This weekend is probably going to be emotional," stated Matt Kenseth. "Everyone is going to be more cautious traveling, and there is more uncertainty. We do have to go on, but on the larger scale of things, we are thinking of the country and the people in New York and Washington, DC."
