MATT KENSETH FIRMLY IN PLACE AT ROUSH RACING

CONCORD, N.C. - Matt Kenseth has signed a multi-year contract with Roush Racing to continue to drive the No. 17 DEWALT Ford Fusion.

The 2003 NEXTEL Cup Series champion, Kenseth helped win Roush Racing's first NEXTEL Cup Championship and has made the Chase for the NEXTEL Cup each of the two years since the format was created. Kenseth and Roush Racing's relationship dates back to 1999. Since then they have together collected 10 wins, three poles, 51 top-five finishes, and 99 top-10 finishes in NASCAR's top division.

"We are very pleased that Matt extended his contract with Roush Racing last fall," said Jack Roush, owner of Roush Racing. "Matt is one of the most talented drivers in the garage and he'll always hold a special place in our organization, having helped to bring us our first Cup championship in 2003. It's very assuring knowing that he will be staying on with us and I know that the first goal on his agenda is to take that championship trophy back."
