Lepage returns to the No. 4 Kodak Pontiac after driving for the Abingdon, Va.-based team for 21 races in 2001. The 41-year old Shelburne, Vermont-native has 131 career NASCAR Winston Cup starts to his credit with two top-fives, eight top-10s and one pole position. Lepage has seven starts at Darlington Raceway with four top-10 starting spots and three top-10 finishes. His best start at the famed 1.366 egg-shaped oval is an outside pole in the spring 2000 event. His best finish there is fifth in the 1999 fall race.
"I am really thankful to Larry and Kodak for giving me the opportunity to get back into the No. 4 car," said Lepage. "We had some good runs together a couple of years ago. When the association came to an end, it was an amicable parting. We decided each of us wanted to try something different at the time. One golden rule to learn in racing is to never burn a bridge because you never know when you might have to cross it again. I am going back across one right now. I am very excited to help Larry (McClure) out and get back in the Kodak Pontiac this weekend. I had a dream last night that we were going to sit on the pole. We should have a good run together."
