Kenseth seeking redemption in Richmond.

MATT KENSETH'S THOUGHTS ON RICHMOND:
"We came from two laps down last Richmond race to finish sixth. I think we should be pretty good on the .75 mile track. I hope we can just forget last week at Darlington, and get back to chasing the points."

CREW CHIEF ROBBIE REISER'S THOUGHTS ON RICHMOND:
"We are taking a new car No. 23 to Richmond. It is a sister car to the one we raced at Loudon and we are going to try it out. It should run well for us, since we dominated in Loudon before the flat tire ruined our chances for a win."

SPOTTER MIKE CALINOFF'S THOUGHTS ON RICHMOND:
"The spotters stand in Richmond offers a decent view from turn one. However, the difficult part is being able to see the cars when they wreck. The sealer that they apply produces thick white smoke and with the reflection of the lights it seems as though a wall is created."

NOTES OF INTEREST:

APPEARANCE: Matt Kenseth will make an appearance at DEWALT's Rolling Thunder display at Richmond from 3:30 - 4:15pm- there will be 300 tickets handed out on race day.

DEWALT MILLION DOLLAR CHALLENGE: Be the fastest to drive five screws into a piece of wood and you could have a chance to win a million dollars during a nationwide contest from DEWALT Power Tools. DEWALT, the familiar yellow-and-black power tool company, is launching the Million Dollar Challenge, a promotion that runs from April to November to see who's quickest with a cordless drill. DEWALT will hold qualifying events in more than 50 cities nationwide, stopping at various power tool distributors, construction sites, NASCAR races, and other special venues to see who can drive screws the fastest. Those with the fastest times from each city will advance to one of 16 regional contests, which will be held at select Chevrolet Truck dealerships throughout the country. From there, the top 16 winners will each receive a new 2003 Chevy Express utility van filled with DEWALT tools. They also earn an expense paid trip to the Million Dollar Challenge finals to be held November 8-10 in Phoenix, AZ during NASCAR's race weekend.

During the final round, the 16 contestants will compete to see who will become America's fastest screw driver. The champion will win a chance to beat the clock for a million dollar prize in front of 110,000 fans at the Winston Cup race. The DEWALT Million Dollar Challenge is presented by DEWALT Power Tools and Accessories, Chevrolet Trucks, Bombardier ATVs and the Greater Phoenix Convention and Visitors Bureau.
