August 4, 2020 1:20 am

Matt Kenseth had another bad day at the office this season as he hit the wall twice and finished second to last on Sunday.

Kenseth finished 37th, just ahead of Kyle Busch, in the NASCAR Cup Series race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
Busch also had a bad race as he had a cut tire and went into the wall quite early in the race.

In a series of unfortunate events, Matt Kenseth brought out the caution thrice during the race. The last of those coming out on Lap 204 of the 301-lap race when he cut a tire and hit the wall on Turn 3.

FOX: NASCAR posted a video of the incident on Twitter, with the caption reading, “It was a frustrating day for Matt Kenseth and the No. 42 team in New Hampshire.”

Eventful race at New Hampshire

Sunday’s race at New Hampshire was won by Brad Keselowski, who edged Denny Hamlin to win his third race this season.

The race also saw Martin Truex Jr. get a penalty due to an uncontrolled tire on Lap 97. Truex Jr. did well to finish the race in the Top-5 thereafter.

Christopher Bell brought out the caution twice as well for incidents resulting from cut tires and finished in 28th place.
Kenseth had another racing incident last week as well at Kansas Speedway, which involved Bubba Wallace and Ryan Preece.

Kenseth was steadily losing fuel, and Preece almost crashed into him. Kenseth went into a half-spin and collided with Wallace.
He went on to complete the race but finished a lowly 17th.

Matt Kenseth is having a tough time at Chip Ganassi Racing

Kenseth has not had the time he had imagined and hoped for with Chip Ganassi Racing.

The 48-year-old had a second-place finish last month at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway but has turned up irregular results of late.

Kenseth had retired from stock car racing and returned to the fold after 18 months when Chip Ganassi Racing (CGR) approached him following the sacking of Kyle Larson.

The racing season was still halted due to the Coronavirus pandemic, but CGR got him on board and Kenseth was back in the No. 42 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1.
