MATT KENSETH RUNS FIRST OF THREE RACES WITH CARHARTT PAINT SCHEME AT DARLINGTON

CONCORD, NC (May 4, 2005) - You won't see the familiar black and yellow "killer bee" paint scheme on the No. 17 DEWALT Ford Taurus this weekend in Darlington. Matt Kenseth will be running the first of three races in the 2005 NASCAR Nextel Cup season with the black and copper colors of Carhartt, manufacturer of premium workwear for over one hundred years.

Kenseth comes into the tenth race of the season in the 23rd position in the Nexel Cup point standings. Having experienced a string of bad luck in the form of cut tires and crashes, Kenseth is looking for his luck to turn around and make a return to his championship form. Kenseth has three top-ten finishes in his eleven Cup starts at Darlington.

The No. 17 will sport the Carhartt colors twice more this season, first at the Brickyard in Indianapolis on August 7, 2005, and then at Lowe's Motor Speedway in Concord, North Carolina, on October 31, 2005. Carhartt joins USG, Trex and DEWALT in rounding out the construction industry based theme of the No. 17 this year.

Carhartt offers a complete product line for both warm and cold weather which includes jeans and work pants, shirts, sweats, shorts, tee's and accessories. To learn more about Carhartt products, please log on to www.carhartt.com.
