Matt Kenseth will drive a white version of the Ford EcoBoost paint scheme this weekend at Atlanta Motor Speedway. The No. 17 Ford Fusion will need to finish 40th if it leads no laps and 41st if it leads a lap in order to clinch a birth in the NASCAR Chase.
Kenseth has run the EcoBoost scheme numerous times this season. Typically these are races in which Roush Fenway Racing has not secured sponsorship for the car.
It was reported earlier this week that an official announcement about the future of the No. 20 car at Joe Gibbs Racing will come on Tuesday. Kenseth is expected to assume the seat.
