Kenseth on racing at Darlington:

"We won a Busch race there in 1999, and had a great run last spring in the Winston Cup car. I hope we can turn around this luck we've been having since we are pretty low in the points right now (29th). It is still early in the year and really anything can happen. I will say again that our pit stops have been outstanding so far this year. It's amazing to see the improvement from last year and how truly awesome this team can be. I think we can pull off a decent qualifying run and then go right to the front again like we did last week in Atlanta. Darlington is a tough track, so there will probably be some wrecks, so I'll rely on my spotter Mike Calinoff to help me through those."

Crew Chief Robbie Reiser on Darlington: "We can turn this momentum around, it's still early in the season. I'm real proud of the guys and Matt because they are all doing an awesome job. They say this track is too tough to tame, but this DEWALT team is pretty tough too."

Notes of Interest: In the past four times Matt Kenseth has raced at Darlington in a Busch Grand National Series car, he finished three times in the top 3.

Qualifying is set for the Winston Cup Series at 10:40 a.m. EST Saturday, March 17th. The green flag will drop on the Carolina Dodge Dealers 400 at 1:00 p.m. ET. FOX and MRN Radio will broadcast the event live.
