JGR finds needed speed

Finishing 38th in two of the last three events, Matt Kenseth expressed concern that his team’s performance needs to improve in a hurry to move from pretender to contender status. And the same can be said for his Joe Gibbs Racing teammates Denny Hamlin and Kyle Busch “My confidence isn’t nearly as high with how we’re running at this point, this year, (compared to) last year...

Chase outsiders not leaving anything to chance

BRISTOL, Tenn. (AP) Matt Kenseth says he's not feeling locked into NASCAR's championship Chase until he's really locked in.

Kenseth, Kahne eye first win as Chase approaches

A big goose egg sits next to Matt Kenseth’s name in the win column a year removed from a season when he posted a career-best seven wins on his way to a runner-up finish in the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup.

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. After he was mired in traffic and finished 20th, he traded places with new leader Jimmie Johnson. Certainly, it's not the position Kenseth wanted to be in entering Martinsville Speedway this weekend. All week long the pundits have given...
