KANSAS CITY, April 22, 2012: Matt Kenseth finished fourth to lead a trio of Roush FenwayFords in top 10 in Sunday’s Sprint Cup race at Kansas Speedway. Fellow RFRteammates Greg Biffle and Carl Edwards finished fifth and ninth. Biffle usedthe finish to maintain his Sprint Cup point lead, while Edwards moved up twospots to ninth in the standings. After eight races Roush has three cars in thetop nine in the standings, with Kenseth sitting at third.

“It was a good run for us - notgreat,” said Kenseth. “I wish we could have got up there and mixed it up withthe top two a little bit more, but overall, it was a solid day. We had good pit stops. Jimmy and the guys made great adjustments on ourcar to make it better from yesterday to today.”

“That was a good effort,” saidEdwards. “It wasn’t a great result, but a really good effort. I had a lot of fun racing Kyle (Busch) at the end. That was really neat. I acted like we were racing for the win and Ithink he was doing the same thing, so at least we got to have a little fun. That was a good time. If that’s the worst Roush Fenway Ford, then we’regoing be OK.”
