Will Kenseth make it six wins in Homestead?

MATT KENSETH'S THOUGHTS ON HOMESTEAD: "I would like to have the confidence of going into Homestead knowing we can win again. It would be awesome to have six wins in one season. With competition as tight as it is, I don't see that happening, but I hope we run well and pick up some positions in the points. I'd like to see my teammate Mark Martin win the championship this weekend. The points battle has been so tight all year long and this is our last chance."



CREW CHIEF ROBBIE REISER'S THOUGHTS ON HOMESTEAD: We are taking car MMR-020. This car made its debut at Homestead last year, but posted a sub par finish after having an alternator wire failure. So far during the 2002 season, MMR-020 has posted one top five and one top ten finish in three outings to include Las Vegas (14th), Indianapolis (3rd), and Kansas (7th).



SPOTTER MIKE CALINOFF'S THOUGHTS ON HOMESTEAD: "Homestead, being a relatively new facility, took care in providing the best possible vantage point for the spotters - so it's an easy place to work. As for the team, there's probably no better way to enter the last race of the season coming off a win - especially in the manner in which we did it."



NOTES OF INTEREST:

DEWALT MILLION-DOLLAR CHALLENGE WINNER... Congratulations to Jon Smith of Delaware, Ohio who beat the Million Dollar Challenge on the front stretch of Phoenix International Raceway with a time of 6.77 seconds to win a million dollars.

BLOOMIN' FAVORITE... Kenseth won his sixth Outback Steakhouse Bloomin' Favorite driver of the race award with his win in Phoenix. He is set to win $75,000 in awards if he hangs on to the lead.

CLOSE TO THIRD... Kenseth is only 72 points out of third place in the point standings.
