Kenseth and the No. 17 DEWALT team were in position to win Sunday’s race at Talladega late, before a flat tire put an end to their latest bid at a third win in ‘09. The team hopes to get back on the right side of lady luck this weekend in Richmond, where Kenseth has nine top-10 finishes and a win in ‘02.
