Matt Kenseth and the DEWALT Team tested at Indianapolis on July 17 & 18 in preparation for the Brickyard 400.

Matt Kenseth has just a few more race weekends left with only one race to compete in. Kenseth will step back into his Robbie Reiser owned Busch Series car at Michigan on August 19, racing all of the remaining conjunction events this season, except Bristol. Kenseth will not be competing in any Truck Series races in 2000.

What did Matt do on his weekend off? Went home to Wisconsin, making a stop at Home Depot in Madison on Wednesday, July 26 for his sponsor DEWALT Tools.

Matt Kenseth's Thoughts on the Brickyard

"Indianapolis may be a track that we struggle at a little. It's a one grove track and very difficult to pass and very flat. It's going to be a challenge. I am looking forward to going there, but I think it's going to be a challenge for us to run up front at Indy.

(Matt's thoughts on his performance thus far this season) The beginning of the year toward the first third we were pretty fast but not very consistent. The one thing I've really worked hard on since Rockingham and Atlanta is to be consistent. We have improved over the last few months, finishing regularly in the top twenty, we just haven't been as fast as we needed to be."
