Kenseth on Kansas City: here we come!

MATT KENSETH'S THOUGHTS ON KANSAS: "I have only ever run at Kansas once, as has everyone else. Last year we qualified well, and then got into an accident in the last part of the race. I think it should be a good run for us, and honestly, it needs to be if we want to make our mark on this season. We need to run up front from now until the end, and can't afford to make any mistakes or have anything go wrong."

CREW CHIEF ROBBIE REISER'S THOUGHTS ON KANSAS: "We are taking car 21 this weekend to Kansas. We tested in Kentucky a week ago to make sure we were prepared for this race."

SPOTTER MIKE CALINOFF'S THOUGHTS ON KANSAS: "Spotting for Matt this weekend will be enjoyable- he loves these types of tracks. We are on a roll!"

DEWALT MILLION DOLLAR CHALLENGEBe the fastest to drive five screws into a piece of wood and you could have a chance to win a million dollars during a nationwide contest from DEWALT Power Tools. DEWALT, the familiar yellow-and-black power tool company, is launching the Million Dollar Challenge, a promotion that runs from April to November to see who's quickest with a cordless drill. DEWALT will hold qualifying events in more than 50 cities nationwide, stopping at various power tool distributors, construction sites, NASCAR races, and other special venues to see who can drive screws the fastest. Those with the fastest times from each city will advance to one of 16 regional contests, which will be held at select Chevrolet Truck dealerships throughout the country. From there, the top 16 winners will each receive a new 2003 Chevy Express utility van filled with DEWALT tools. They also earn an expense paid trip to the Million Dollar Challenge finals to be held November 8-10 in Phoenix, AZ during NASCAR's race weekend.

During the final round, the 16 contestants will compete to see who will become America's fastest screw driver. The champion will win a chance to beat the clock for a million dollar prize in front of 110,000 fans at the Winston Cup race. The DEWALT Million Dollar Challenge is presented by DEWALT Power Tools and Accessories, Chevrolet Trucks, Bombardier ATVs and the Greater Phoenix Convention and Visitors Bureau.
