Matt Kenseth's Thoughts on Sears Point

"The road course is a track that I have never been very good at. We have run good at times on the road course in the Busch Series, but haven't finished the greatest. We did not test at Sears Point, but I did go to a driving school to work on my road course skills. The team built two new road course cars that have never been raced or tested. This is a track we may struggle more so than others. I just want to finish and get some experience. If I could leave Sears Point and feel like I learned a bit more on how to tackle the track, I'll be happy."
