CHINA GROVE, N.C. (May 10, 2011) – Alex “Kid” Kennedy is going to have some help when he takes on Miles the Monster in this weekend’s NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Dover International Speedway.

Kennedy, 19, will have Funny Dan the Race Car Man on the hood and St. Baldrick’s Foundation on his quarter panels and decklid as he races on the one-mile concrete oval of the “Monster Mile.” This will be his second start for R3 Motorsports this year and fourth start at Dover, with the prior ones coming in K&N East Pro Series competition.

With the combined forces of Kennedy, Funny Dan and St. Baldrick’s all teaming together to take on Miles the Monster, R3 Motorsports is looking to continue their success as of late. A finish of 20th by Robert Richardson, Jr. at Richmond and 13th at Darlington last week by Scott Riggs put them back in the top-30 in Owner’s Points.

Car Facts: Walter Giles and team are rolling out chassis No. 36 for this race. The last time this car saw action was at Bristol Motor Speedway when engine problems cut their day short just 67 circuits into the race.

Come meet Kid Kennedy: Alex Kennedy will take part in the NNS Driver’s Autograph Session at 8 a.m. on Saturday morning in the souvenir alley outside of the frontstretch.

I can't think of a better combination; a kid's book and a kid's cancer charity on the car of Kid Kennedy.

Alex Kennedy Quotes: “I'm looking forward to getting back in the No. 23 Dodge for R3 Motorsports, and I couldn't pick a better place than Dover. I love the Monster Mile and its due time we avoid getting bitten again there. I'm looking forward to continuing the momentum that Rob Jr. and Scott Riggs have built up the past few weekends.

“Funny Dan the Racecar Man is on our hood for Dover. This is a new children’s book written by our very own Tim Packman. St. Baldrick’s is also returning to our car on the quarter panels. I can't think of a better combination; a kid's book and a kid's cancer charity on the car of Kid Kennedy. Having spent some time with the St. Baldrick's people, I'm looking forward to what we can do together to “Conquer Kid's Cancer.”

“My primary goals are to set a quick pace in practice, bust out a good qualifying time and keep that momentum rolling for the race. I'm really looking forward to this weekend at one of my favorite tracks.”
