There is something about adding the Texas Motor Speedway and Roush Fenway Racing teams together that equals success. Kenseth has two victories at the track, (April ’08 and April ’11), teammate Greg Biffle has two of his own, and teammate Carl Edwards has three victories of his own. Before he leaves Roush Fenway Racing, Kenseth will look to use some of that magic for his third victory in Sunday’s AAA Texas 500. Team:          No. 17 Ford EcoBoost Fusion Crew Chief:  Jimmy Fennig Chassis:      Primary: RK-821 (last run at Charlotte) -In 20 Cup starts at Texas, Kenseth has completed 6,638 of 6,690 laps (99.2 percent) and led for 771 laps -Kenseth has an average starting position of 16.1 and an average finishing position of 8.6 at Texas -Kenseth is the top active driver in the Sprint cup Series at TMS with the best average finish (8.6) and the most laps led (771) -Kenseth has achieved two wins, 11 top-five and 14 top-10 finishes at Texas in the Cup series -Kenseth holds the record for the most top five (11) and the most top 10’s (14) in Cup action at Texas -This weekend at Texas, Kenseth will pilot the No. 17 Ford EcoBoost Fusion -Entering the weekend at Texas, Kenseth is currently 8th in the Chase driver point standings Matt Kenseth on racing at Texas Motor Speedway: “Texas is a really great race track that I really enjoy racing at twice during the season.  There are a lot of fans who always come out and support us there, and it’s also a place that I’ve been lucky enough to have had some great races and finishes at.  Texas is a fast 1.5-mile track where we have options to run several lines.  It’s a place that can be challenging as well since the straightaways are fairly flat while the corners have some high banking in them.  I’m looking forward to this weekend and hope to have another strong performance at a 1.5-mile track similar to our run at Kansas.” Crew chief Jimmy Fennig on racing at Texas Motor Speedway: “We’re bringing the car that we last ran at Charlotte, and I thought it was a pretty good car for us.  Going into Texas we ran pretty decent in the spring, but I also feel like we’ve improved our stuff since the spring as well.  We’re going to take some of what we learned at Kansas in regards to set-ups and plan to apply it to Texas as a starting point for this weekend’s race.”
