Fast Facts

* Matt Kenseth scored his first NASCAR Cup Series career victory in the Coca-Cola 600 at the Lowe's Motor Speedway in 2000.

* In his eleven starts at Lowe's, Kenseth has one win, four top-five's and six top-ten finishes.

* Matt Kenseth will be running car number 38 in the upcoming Coca-Cola 600. This is the same car that ran in Fontana earlier this year.

Matt Kenseth on racing at Lowe's Motor Speedway: "Lowe's Motor Speedway is definitely one of my favorite tracks. It's particularly special to me because I got my first Cup win here back in 2000. We've come away with good finishes the last couple of years here, so I'm looking forward to the 600. It is the longest race of the year, so it will be challenging, but it should be fun."

Crew Chief Robbie Reiser on racing at Lowe's Motor Speedway: "We've had some good finishes here at Lowe's so I'll think we'll be in good shape for the 600. We're bringing car number 38 this weekend, the same car we ran in Fontana for the first time earlier this year. The car was strong in Fontana, but we didn't get the finish we should have out of it. We were running in the top-ten when we cut a tire down with less than twenty laps to go. But the car was fast and I think we'll be competitive this weekend."
