Kenseth, team must return to basics

Matt Kenseth and the No. 20 just had a horrible weekend in Phoenix. There has to be huge disappointment in that camp right now because the odds are really stacked against them being able to win the championship now.

Kenseth eyes rebound after 'Dega

The Talladega "shuffle" bit Matt Kenseth on Sunday. Kenseth entered last weekend with a four-point advantage in the Chase standings.
