Counting Down To Race Weekend With Car No. 17

Wednesday, August 19, 2009

In just 17 days, the first full weekend of night racing comes to Atlanta Motor Speedway...

As the much-awaited weekend gets closer and closer - 17 days away to be exact - here's a look at the driver of car No. 17 in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, Matt Kenseth.

Although Kenseth has never won a Sprint Cup Series race in Atlanta, he is no stranger to success at AMS. In the Cup Series, he has finished in the top five 11 times in 19 starts at Atlanta, matching his highest number of top fives at any track other than Dover and Michigan. In the Nationwide Series, Kenseth has won twice at Atlanta and is the defending champion of Atlanta's Nationwide race - the Degree V12 300.

Atlanta could end up being very important to Kenseth's hopes of qualifying for the Chase for the Championship as he is currently 11th in the points standings, 32 points ahead of 13th place Brian Vickers.

Make sure to have your seat to witness Kenseth and the rest of NASCAR's stars race under the lights at Atlanta Motor Speedway! Tickets start at $39.
