   Daytona 500 winner Matt Kenseth, who also won the California 500 this spring, is looking for a new sponsor.
   Kenseth and team owner Jack Roush were told Thursday that DeWalt, the power tool company,  will not be renewing its sponsorship of the 2003 NASCAR Cup tour champion.
    Geoff Smith, head of Roush Fenway Racing, pointed to the 10 years of success Kenseth's team had with DeWalt as sponsor: "They will always be remembered and honored as the sponsor of Jack Roush's first Sprint Cup Championship team.
    "Despite this success, in the face of the significant world-wide economic decline in the construction industry, DeWalt's decision to not return is not a great surprise to us.
   "Fortunately we have several great companies interested in taking over, and we expect to begin finalizing those sponsorship arrangements in the very near future.
   "All of us at Roush Fenway Racing remain committed to keeping the team running up front, winning races, in position to contend for a second championship this season."
   With Dewalt on the quarterpanel Kenseth has won 18 races and the championship, and he's qualified for the 10-race championship chase all five seasons.


How 'bout Shell? Since the cars are already yellow, think about the money they could save by not repainting them. ;)
