How a NASCAR veteran landed a deserved farewell tour
Chip Ganassi Racing has turned to a semi-retired NASCAR champion to replace the fired Kyle Larson. But as the decision to end his full-time Cup career in 2017 was made for him, it could be the farewell tour that a modern great deserves
When Kyle Larson lost his Chip Ganassi Racing drive and was indefinitely suspended by NASCAR for using a racial slur on an iRacing broadcast, it set in motion a chain of events that led to one of the series' most popular drivers receiving a shock call-up to drive CGR's No. 42 Chevrolet Camaro.
Having been pushed aside by Joe Gibbs Racing in 2017 to make space for development driver Erik Jones, Matt Kenseth entered 15 Cup races in 2018 for his previous employers Roush Fenway Racing - the team with which he won the 2003 Cup series championship and scored both of his Daytona 500 victories in 2009 and 2012 - but hasn't competed since.
