I think that the experience and professionalism Matt Kenseth has, that crew chief Jimmy Fennig has and, quite honestly, that their whole Roush Fenway Racing team has will have an impact on how they handle NASCAR's Chase for the Sprint Cup knowing that Kenseth is leaving at season's end. Certainly, it's going to be on their minds; they're human. They know there are only 10 more races they are going to be together. But if anybody can do it, that group can block it out and go ahead and battle for more wins and for this championship. I have to say, they have work to do. If Kenseth was not leaving there, they still have work to do because right now they're just an also-ran. They finish races, they finish on the lead lap, they somehow find their way to the top 10, but those things are not going to win you a championship. And I basically say the same thing for his teammate, Greg Biffle. I know he just won Michigan about a month ago, but he and Matt Kenseth, they're just there right now...
