Kenseth's Performance Summary at Talladega Superspeedway: Date: 4/16/00 Start: 42 Finish: 18 Laps: 187/188 Money: $50,260 Status: Running

Date: 10/15/00 Start: 36 Finish:10 Laps: 188/188 Money: $65,100 Status: Running </pre> Matt Kenseth's thoughts on Talladega:
"Finishing 6th at Martinsville gave us the momentum we need to get this program back to where we should be -- running up front. We've had so many freak things happen to us this year that were beyond our control. We were running good in Daytona and a shock mount broke. We were great in Atlanta and had a mechanical failure. Then at Darlington and Texas we had accidents. This team has been capable of running up front every week. Last year we had a top 10 at Talladega. Its anyone's race with the rules package. A lot of people are concerned about safety again, but I think it will be all right. Roush Racing is committed to safety."

Crew Chief Robbie Reiser's thoughts on Talladega:
"That finish in Martinsville was great. It shows what this team is made of. We're ready to go to Talladega and keep it going."
