Kenseth on racing at Atlanta Motor Speedway: "Last year in the Atlanta spring race we qualified 4th and lead early on. I really like tracks like this. I think we have things figured out in the pits for this DEWALT team, now we just have to get the cars to handle better. We should have been a lot better at Vegas last week, but the car would not cooperate. In the fall last year at Atlanta, we did really well, bringing home a top 10 finish. We want to be competitive and run in the front this weekend, because I know we have the ability and team to do it."

Crew Chief Robbie Reiser on Atlanta: "We are taking car No. 6 to Atlanta. Car 6 is the car we won the Coca Cola 600 with. We replaced the body over the winter, but its the same chassis. We have a good track record of performance at Atlanta, so we're hoping to have a solid finish and pick up some positions in the points. The key to being good in Atlanta is a good combination of horsepower, handling, and aerodynamics. This DEWALT team has worked hard to make that combination work."

Matt Kenseth will appear along with Roush Racing teammates Jeff Burton  
and Kurt Busch at the Tilly Mill Home Depot to sign autographs on       
Friday night March 9th from 7-8 p.m. DEWALT's Rolling Thunder display   
will be on hand as well as a No. 17 showcar from 4-7:30 p.m.            

Qualifying is set for the Winston Cup Series at 3:00 p.m. ET on Friday, March 9th. The green flag will drop on the Cracker Barrel Old Country Store 500 at 1:00 p.m. ET. FOX and PRN Radio will broadcast the event live.
