Matt Kenseth reacted to the news of his departure from his longtime team Roush-Fenway Racing after this season Tuesday by telling his fans that he will not be a ‘lame duck’ at the team. Kenseth will be leaving the team after 13 seasons and as the 2003 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion. He won the season opening Daytona 500 and is currently atop the standings.
Tuesday shortly after the Roush announcement, Kenseth used Twitter to release a statement.
“Although I have nothing to announce regarding 2013, I feel the timing of this announcement gives RFR ample time to get things lined up,” Kenseth said. “I’m very thankful to Jack Roush for the opportunities he’s given me over the past 14 years. Together we have enjoyed a lot of success and as a team we are committed as ever to the remainder of the 2012 season and chasing a 3rd sprint cup title for Jack and RFR.” MORE>>>
