NOTES

* Matt Kenseth captured his second win of the season last weekend in California, his fifth career win. This was Matt's first win at a track bigger than 1.3 miles in length. * Kenseth will be running the same Monte Carlo he ran with at Nashville Speedway earlier this season. This will be the just second race for this Laughlin built chassis. * With Matt's win in California, he surpasses the 1.5 millions dollar mark in his Busch Series Career Earnings. In Kenseth's 63 Busch starts, he has won $1,515,860. * Kenseth gained 5 points on Championship Point Leader Dale Earnhardt Jr. after the Auto Club 300. Coming in to New Hampshire, Matt is trailing Little E by 95 points.

MATT KENSETH'S THOUGHTS ON New Hampshire "We've never ran that good at New Hampshire before. I've only raced there twice, but both times were disappointing finishes for the team. I'm looking forward to the challenge of going back to NHIS and improving our performance on a flat racing surface. I'm hoping the momentum from the last two runs at Talladega and California will carry over and we can come out of New England with a top ten finish."
