KENSETH RETURNS TO NO. 16 TEAM - Matt Kenseth returns to the No. 16 team this weekend for one last Nationwide race this season at Atlanta Motor Speedway in the World Financial Group Ford. Kenseth made two starts for the team earlier this season, his highest finish being 10th after starting eighth at Richmond International Raceway.

ATLANTA CHASSIS SELECTION - Crew chief Rick Viers has selected RK-372 for this weekend's Great Clips 300 at Atlanta Motor Speedway. This car was last raced by Kenseth at Darlington where he finished 30th after being caught up in a late-race accident.

Kenseth, on returning to the No. 16 team in Atlanta:
"I'm looking forward to driving the No. 16 World Financial Group Ford in the Nationwide Series race this weekend. It's my first time working with Rick [Viers, crew chief], but he is a veteran in the sport and I believe we will be able to put together a good weekend. World Financial Group has been a great partner of Roush Fenway and I'm honored that I get to drive their car at Atlanta under the lights. When we're able to combine a great sponsor like World Financial Group, along with a track like Atlanta where we've had success at in the past, it always makes for an exciting race weekend."

Crew chief Rick Viers, on working with Kenseth in Atlanta:
"The No. 16 team is excited to have Matt [Kenseth] back in the car and I'm honored to get to work with him this weekend. Matt definitely knows how to get around Atlanta Motor Speedway, having won his last time at the track in a Nationwide Series race. It's a one day show with a night race under the lights and I think we have the potential for a really great finish and we'd like nothing more than to do that for World Financial Group."
