Dale Jr., Matt Kenseth and Kevin Harvick have reason to smile after Texas. They all made lemonade out of days that started out as sour as lemons. Photo Credit: John Gress/Getty Images for NASCAR By: Toby Christie – Follow on Twitter @Tobalical Sunday at Texas Motor Speedway several of NASCAR’s biggest names found themselves in huge trouble in the middle-to-late stages of the race. Matt Kenseth found himself as low as 27th at one point in the race, but he wouldn’t throw in the towel. Neither would fellow competitors Tony Stewart, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Kevin Harvick. All four drivers found themselves outside the top-20 late in the AAA Texas 500, but each and every one of them rebounded for nice top-10 finishes. Kenseth, who finished fourth gave credit to his crew chief, and his raceteam. “It was Jimmy (Fennig) and those guys that made some really good decisions for adjustments and pit stops and we had some fairly decent restarts and got back in it,” Kenseth the 2003 Sprint Cup Champion stated.
