This will be Kenseth's second Busch Series race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, but his third time competing at the track. Matt ran a Southwest Tour race at the speedway in 1997.

Matt will be running the same Monte Carlo he won with at Pikes Peak International Raceway on June 14, 1998. Reiser Enterprises did not test at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway prior to race weekend.

Did you know? The Reiser Raiders (#17 DeWALT Racing Pit Crew) practice pit stops everyday at the race shop. Their best four tire stop? 17.4 seconds.

MATT'S THOUGHTS ON LAS VEGAS

"Last year we had an awful race weekend at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. We were involved in an accident towards the end of the race and we never quite were the same afterwards. We came into this race last year tied for the points lead with Mark Martin. We finished the race in 24th spot and fell to 4th in the points standings. This is the big hump we need to get over. Last season we started out similar to this year but we stumbled at the Vegas race. We need to have a solid finish and come out of there unscathed. I will feel much better about the rest of the season if we can come home with a top ten finish."
