Concord, N.C. (March 4, 2008) - Arby’s returns as primary sponsor of Matt Kenseth’s No. 17 Ford Fusion in the Nationwide Series this weekend at Atlanta Motor Speedway. Arby’s adorned the No. 17 Ford Fusion in the Nationwide Series 13 times in 2007 with Kenseth accumulating one win, two poles and eight top-five finishes.
“I love driving for Arby’s,” said Kenseth. “They’re a great sponsor and since day one they’ve been really excited about their involvement with our team. We’ve had pretty good luck when they’re on the car, so hopefully we can continue that this weekend at Atlanta.”
Arby’s will also serve as primary sponsor of the No. 17 Ford Fusion in the Nationwide Series later this season at Kansas Speedway.
As always, if Kenseth wins either the Sprint Cup or Nationwide event this weekend, Arby’s will be giving away free medium curly fries on Monday. Customers will need to bring in a printed copy of the official race results from a newspaper or web site, or a free fry coupon from arbys.com, to participating Arby's on “Matt’s Monday” to receive their free order of medium curly fries.
