Matt Kenseth's Thoughts on Darlington

"I always look forward to going to Darlington. It is one of my better tracks and probably one of my favorite tracks to drive on. We've had some really good runs there in a Winston Cup car. I know this time they changed the tire, and we are taking a different car, so it may be a little bit different when we go back. But it is a race track I have a lot of fun racing on. "
