Matt Kenseth: Stats and Championships

In the Winston Cup 2003 season, Kenseth courted controversy. Many were not too fond of the Winston Cup points system. Some like Roger Penske questioned his ability to win the championship despite one race win. That sole win came at Las Vegas, but he failed to get on the top step since then.

Kenseth led the points standings for 33 weeks with that one victory.
