WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. — Matt Kenseth isn’t exactly a man without a race team, but he still hasn’t announced his deal for next year.

It’s a poorly kept secret that Kenseth will be driving for Joe Gibbs Racing in 2013, but sources have told the NASCAR Wire Service that Kenseth is embargoed contractually from announcing his new ride until a later date, perhaps before the end of August.

Asked about the possible timing of the announcement, Kenseth was typically circumspect.

“I would if I knew, but I don’t know,” Kenseth said.

But is the deal for next year still in place?

“I hope so,” Kenseth said with a laugh.
