CONCORD, N.C. (February 4, 2008) - The popular, predominantly black, DEWALT NANO* Technology paint scheme will return to Matt Kenseth's No. 17 Ford Fusion for six races in 2008. All six are night races with the paint scheme debuting at Phoenix International Raceway on April 12th.
After that, the month of May will nearly be a complete "black out," with the paint scheme running three consecutive races, beginning at Richmond International Raceway on May 3rd, then Darlington Raceway on May 10th, and the Sprint All-Star Race at Lowe's Motor Speedway on May 17th.
The next stop for the DEWALT NANO* Technology scheme will be at one of Kenseth's favorite tracks, Bristol Motor Speedway, for the August 23rd night race, where he's won two of the last three night races. Then the final stop for the paint scheme will be back at Richmond International Raceway on September 6th, for the "regular season" finale, the cutoff for the Chase.
"It's a cool-looking car and I'm glad that we'll be running it some in 2008," Kenseth said. "I've always thought black racecars look really cool and I think the fans liked the scheme when it ran last year. I know the last time we ran the NANO scheme we had a pretty good day at Homestead, so maybe it can bring us the same kind of good luck this year."
