Matt Kenseth and Dewalt Tools will be reunited in 2015 ... and it feels so good for old-school Kenseth fans.
Dewalt, of course, sponsored the No. 17 car that Kenseth piloted during his time at Roush Fenway Racing. On Friday, Kesenth's current employer Joe Gibbs Racing released this video showing the No. 20 being wrapped in Dewalt colors.
DeWalt will rejoin forces with NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Matt Kenseth for the 2015 season.
Kenseth will be driving the No. 20 Toyota Camry at Joe Gibbs Racing for his third season in 2015 with six race sponsorship coming from DeWalt.

It turned out to be his best season by far since joining the series full-time in 2000.
With the strong...

NASCAR drivers are not upset with the way Brad Keselowski drives, but they do hate the way he conducts himself after incidents.
Keselowski fought with Matt Kenseth, Denny Hamlin, Jeff Gordon and Kevin Harvick this past season after making moves that cost them during races.

To say that 2014 was a year of struggle for the Toyota teams, I believe would be an understatement.
The numbers are glaring. In 2013, fve different Toyota Sprint Cup drivers won 14 races among them. Well, to be fair one driver, Matt Kenseth, won seven of those 14.
Unfortunately, this season the Toyotas simply weren't that dominant. They only won two races -- and taking it a step...
Kevin Harvick became the second consecutive driver in his first season with a new team to reach the season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway, as Matt Kenseth had done the same the year before, although Harvick triumphed while Kenseth finished second to Jimmie Johnson.

If you ask...

RIDGELAND, Miss. — This is it. After 35 race weekends, the 2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series comes down to one final race to determine the champion.

Last season at Homestead, Jimmie Johnson came...

Kenseth doesn’t have a victory this season, and his No. 20 Toyota hasn’t been consistently as fast as the front-running cars of Kevin Harvick, Brad Keselowski, Joey Logano and Jeff Gordon. When his third-place finish in Sunday’s Quicken Loans Race for Heroes...
The Champions Tour, for golfers age 50 and over, has been called the biggest mulligan in professional sports, but Matt Kenseth thinks he’s found the NASCAR equivalent. Though he’s still looking for his first NASCAR Sprint Cup Series victory this season, Kenseth has used the new Chase format to his advantage in staying alive in the quest for a second series title. Interestingly...
Roger Penske said Monday that he fully supports Brad Keselowski, who has now been involved in two post-race fights in four races.
“The Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup has provided great excitement and intense competition,” Penske said in a statement. “Brad Keselowski is a champion who competes to win in every race...
For the second time in a month someone wanted to punch Brad Kaselowski’s lights out after a race. Last time it was Matt Kenseth. This time it was Jeff Gordon. Neither guy is known for getting into skirmishes, so I think it’s safe to say that Kaselowski is doing some dumb stuff.
Gordon is still alive in the playoff chase and was racing for the win. Kaselowski made contact with...
Kyle Busch was looking to sweep the Texas race weekend as Matt Kenseth had the poll for the final 500 mile event of the season.
