The #17 DEWALT Ford Taurus is sporting a new decal design for the CARSDIRECT.com 400. DEWALT launched a new line of 24 Volt cordless power tools in December of 1999 and decided to carry the promotion over into the racing program. The #17's hood and quarter panels feature the new 24 Volt reciprocating saw and the AC/DC converter pack.
The DEWALT Race team tested at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on January 31 and February 1 in preparation for the CARSDIREST.com 400.
This will be Kenseth's fourth race at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Kenseth has run in two Busch races at LVMS in 1998 and 1999 and competed in a Southwest touring series event in 1997.
