NASCAR BGN: Kenseth Dominates at Darlington

21 March 1999

DARLINGTON, SC: Matt Kenseth eclipsed the field at Darlington Saturday. The driver who chased Dale Earnhardt, Jr. all season a year ago, was the class of the field at NASCAR's oldest super-speedway as the Busch Grand National stars raced in front of more than 50,000 racing fans.

The Busch Grand National drivers typically take a back seat to the NASCAR Winston Cup drivers who participate in the Saturday afternoon racing. It wasn't so on this Saturday. The top three finishing positions were filled by Busch Grand National regulars.

Kenseth will be substituting for the injured Bobby Labonte in the TranSouth 400 Winston Cup race on Sunday. He may be a surprise winner in that race as well. Kenseth made a name for himself last year at Dover by leading in the Winston Cup race. He was driving for Bill Elliott at "the Monster Mile" while Elliott attended his father's funeral.

"I was able to learn some things about what the race track was doing, and Bobby gave me a few tips," Kenseth said. "I just hope I can go out and do the best for them tomorrow."
