Matt Kenseth – Where Are You?

Matt Kenseth – Where Are You?

Kenseth to become a Grandpa in 2018

Matt Kenseth – Where Are You?

“I don't really have anything to be unhappy about,” Kenseth said in August of 2017 after learning he would be replaced as driver of the #20. “My life couldn't be much better. I've never really been in a better place. I don't think I've ever been happier. There's more to life than racing.”

NASCAR Race Mom is a huge Matthew Roy "Matt" Kenseth fan. When youngster Erik Jones took over his job in the #20 Toyota, no one was more bummed than I. However, NRM was very hopeful that Matt would find a ride for the 2018 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup series. After all, Matt won the cup race in Phoenix on November 12, 2017. He also claimed two poles in the season and finished a respectful seventh in the standings.

Unfortunately, after scouring the internet, it would appear that Matt has fallen of the face of the Racing World. I found nothing, nada, zilch. I checked his website, which features as the ‘latest news,’ Kenseth’s top-ten finish in his last career start at Joe Gibbs Racing.

His latest tweet is dated 11/09/2017. While Kenseth’s facebook page  appears to have been converted into a fan page.

However, NASCAR Race Mom did learn that Matt is destined to become a new Grandfather in 2018. His eldest child, Ross and wife Amber are expecting their bundle of joy in July.

Anyone have Matt Kenseth Racing Rumors to share?

On a personal note, NASCAR Race Mom had the pleasure of working with Mr. Kenseth (click here)  once back in 2011. I found the man to be humble, kind, and very very helpful. #ThanksKenseth - I will miss you.
