Fast Facts

* In his 11 Cup starts at Pocono, Matt Kenseth has finished in the top-five twice and the top-ten five times.

* Kenseth will be running car number 39 on Sunday in Pocono. In the 2005 season, this car has competed in the All-Star Challenge, Dover and Chicago. Running the USG Sheetrock paint scheme, this car led 176 laps at the Chicagoland Speedway two weeks ago to a second-place finish.

Matt Kenseth on racing at Pocono: "Going into Pocono, our team feels confident that we can be a top-ten finisher week in and week out. We've improved our finishes this summer and I was really proud of what we were able to do on Sunday in Loudon. We didn't have a great car but everyone stayed focused and we were able to come home with another top-ten finish. We'll be looking to continue that streak in Pocono this weekend."

Crew Chief Robbie Reiser on racing at Pocono: "We had a decent car at Pocono last month. We made a questionable call towards the end of the race by coming down pit road under green, and we had some bad luck with our tires, but we also ran up in the top ten. We're bringing our car from Chicagoland to Pocono this weekend which has proven itself as a fast race car. With consistent top-ten finishes, we're chipping our way toward the top ten in points. That's what we'll be looking for on Sunday, another top-ten finish."
