KANSAS CITY, Oct. 22, 2012: Matt Kenseth dominated the later moments of Sunday’s NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Kansas Speedway to give Roush Fenway the weekend sweep at the newly-paved 1.5-mile track; RFR’s Ricky Stenhouse Jr. won the Nationwide race at Kansas on Saturday.

“It (the win) really means a lot,” said an emotional Kenseth in victory lane. “I have to thank God for all of the opportunities and guidance. I (also) want to thank Jack Roush, Robbie Reiser and Mark Martin; without those guys I would have never been at Roush Fenway Racing.”

Kenseth was fast on the day, leading a race-high 77 laps and driving his No. 17 Zest Ford away from the field during the final 20 laps of the race. For Kenseth it was his third win of the season and his second in the 2012 Chase for the Sprint Cup. It is his 24th career Sprint Cup victory.

The win marks Roush Fenway Racing’s 311th NASCAR victory, with 130 coming in the Sprint Cup Series. It is RFR’s fourth Sprint Cup Series win at Kansas and it’s ninth overall win at the track. Kenseth becomes the eighth Roush Fenway driver to win at Kansas.
