Matt Kenseth: Stats and Championships

Matt Kenseth started racing on several short tracks in Wisconsin and won track championships at Madison International Speedway, Slinger Super Speedway, and Wisconsin International Raceway. He moved to the ARTGO, American Speed Association, and Hooters Late Model touring series before getting a full-time ride in the NASCAR Busch Series (now Xfinity Series) for his former Wisconsin short track rival Robbie Reiser, finishing second and third in the standings.

Kenseth moved up in the NASCAR Winston Cup Series. He won the series' Rookie of the Year title in 2000

Matt Kenseth has amassed many trophies since his debut 22-years ago. This includes two Daytona 500 wins, one All-Star Sprint race win in 2004, and two Budweiser Duel wins.

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.
