PLAYERS: Matt Kenseth
Matt Kenseth has 13 starts at the Kansas Speedway, but no victories to his credit so far. He has been able to earn a pole, 4 top 5s, and 7 top 10 finishes in those 13 starts. He finished fourth one year ago and again mirrored that in the spring at this race. He sits 11th in points and needs a strong run to continue a mark up the Chase ladder. Team:          No. 17 Zest Ford Fusion Crew Chief:  Jimmy Fennig Chassis:      Primary: RK-826 (brand new chassis)                                   Matt Kenseth on racing at Kansas Speedway: “They did a really nice job with the repave at Kansas Speedway.  They put a little bit more banking in it and the track was really smooth when we went out there for our test.  It reminded me a lot of Las Vegas after they changed that track. I’m not sure if they did or not, but it seems like they narrowed up the groove a lot, especially in Turn 1. As much as they have been dragging tires and getting everyone out on the track at Kansas, I think it will be good for this weekend’s racing.” Crew chief Jimmy Fennig on racing at Kansas Speedway: “We’re bringing a brand new car with us this weekend to Kansas.  We participated in a tire test on this new surface, but we also have two extra days on track this week to get ready for this weekend.  We have a few ideas that we’re going to try and see what ends up being the best to put into our car for this weekend.  It’s a whole different track now but I have a feeling that we’ll see the cars start out slow, but as more rubber builds into the track, the faster they’ll go and more grip they’ll have.” -Kenseth has an average starting position of 13.8 and an average finishing position of 16.9 at Kansas -Kenseth has achieved one pole, four top-five and seven top-10 finishes at Kansas in the Cup series -Kenseth has completed 3,205 of 3,419 (93.7 percent) laps at Kansas and led for a total of 238 laps - This weekend at Kansas, Kenseth will pilot the No. 17 Zest Ford Fusion - Entering this weekend, Kenseth is currently 11th in the NSCS Chase driver point standings

Talladega is known for the wrecks and has become one of, if not the most popular races in the NASCAR circuit, and this year’s race did not disappoint. Matt Kenseth was propelled to victory with a 25 car pile up, when Chase leader Tony Stewart tried to protect his lead by blocking traffic. The move certainly backfired and the wreck consumed 10 of the 12 drivers in the Chase. Click...
