Kennington Captures Career Best at Richmond

DJ Kennington and the MacDonald Motorsports crew hit Richmond Virginia with mixed emotions after last weekend's finish at Talladega. Richmond, a track that Kennington has experience at (only 3rd race of 11 this season) has been a thorn in his side with no finish better 37th in his career.

The #81 Vector Security/MC2 Energy Drink/N.P.P./Marriott Dodge was very tight inthe last practice right before qualifying for Friday night. "We got a horrible draw for qualifying, going out first in the heat of the day", stated Kennington. "We loosened the car up quite a bit and I drove in a little hot into one and didnt stick. That messed up lap one and ultimately lap two and we qualified 39th."

Not to let a bad qualifying lap get the team down, DJ and the Vector Security crew went to work at the drop of the green flag and quickly moved up into 29th.

"It is so hard to pass here and with Carl Edwards setting the pace that he did, we went down two laps during the 70 lap green flag run as well as half the field." Kennington continued to claw his way through positions and at the close of the event, finished 27th.

"It was a decent day for us as we gained on some teams infront of us in the standings and didnt lose any to those behind us. I really look forward to the next race at Darlington with MC2 Energy Drink/The Fighting Illini and The UNLV Runnin Rebels on the 81. Along with Vector Security, N.P.P., STP Tools and Mahindra Tractors, I feel we have a great chance at a strong finish at the "Lady in Black" on Friday night."
