Matt Kenseth has run 15 years in NASCAR Sprint Cup Series action for Roush-Fenway Racing and when the checkered flag falls on Sunday evening in Homestead, that long run will come to an end. It will certainly be emotional for both parties as Kenseth will part ways and move on to pilot the No. 20 Home Depot Toyota next season for Joe Gibbs Racing. It’s been a great 15 years for Kenseth and Roush. He has 24 career wins, including two Daytona 500 victories, 227 top 10′s, and the 2003 Sprint Cup championship. He also was the Rookie of the Year back in 2000, beating out the ever popular Dale Earnhardt Jr. for that crown. Many fans, including myself, thought Kenseth’s hopes in the Chase would dwindle by the week as the relationship between the two parties would almost get an awkward point near the end of the year. I questioned the timing of the announcement that Kenseth would be leaving, given that he was leading the points at the time and looking like a legitimate title contender this season. I do believe that hurt his chances for the championship, but the team has nonetheless worked hard for him in the Chase. Expect Kenseth to be a threat for the win on Sunday as he will certainly want to go out on top for the team. They’ve had two wins during the Chase and a third isn’t too farfetched. Kenseth has typically run good at Homestead with one win and three top fives in 12 career starts. I would expect the two parties to work closely together for one last weekend before they officially say goodbye.   The post NASCAR: Matt Kenseth’s run at Roush coming to an emotional end Sunday appeared first on Race Review Online.
