Matt Kenseth announced in June that he would not be returning to Roush Fenway Racing (RFR), but so far there hasn’t been an announcement of where the 2003 NASCAR Champion is going, but that is all going to change next week.
It is said that there is a clause in Kenseth’s contract that barred him to speak of contract changes until a specific date in August.

Have you heard the rumor? You know which one. The one what Greg Zipadelli will be the crew chief for Tony Stewart.
Yep. I have heard it. I heard it yesterday. I heard it this off season. I heard it last year. I have heard it since Tony Stewart left Joe Gibbs Racing.
This rumor will continue. And there are plenty of reasons for it to continue. Greg Zipadelli no longer needs to leave...
In last nights Irwin Tools Night Race at Bristol Motor Speedway, cars wrecked, tempers flared and the drivers were definitely challenged on a track that had been through track modifications raising lots of unknowns for the drivers and their teams.

Matt Kenseth is expecting to lose his Kansas Speedway lap record in the near future.
Kenseth was among eight drivers to check out the repaved surface of the 1 1/2-mile tri-oval on Tuesday during tire testing for Goodyear. New variable banking combined with the smoother asphalt surface made for some quick lap times, even during the shortened runs.
Kenseth set the record of 29.858...
Bristol Motor Speedway provided a delightful stage for plenty of drama on Saturday night.
The only thing missing -- other than 500 laps of side-by-side action -- was the postrace confrontation between Tony Stewart and Matt Kenseth.
Does anyone really believe that Stewart released all his anger when he thrust his helmet onto Kenseth's hood or that either champion calmed down...
Nope. (fast forward to :20 mark)
How ridiculously accurate was that throw by Tony Stewart?
Right in the (car) grill on Matt Kenseth. Boom! That helmet throwing and celebration is enough to be a total badass but what put Stewart to the top of the list was this post race interview.

The track had the top two degrees of banking ground off to force the cars to run closer together, and the top lane became ultra slippery. The circuit changes forced closer racing at the beginning of the 500 laps, and Bristol lived up to its reputation.
