Matt Kenseth, Joey Logano Set To Announce Future NASCAR Plans

Two more pieces of NASCAR's Silly Season puzzle will fall into place Tuesday as Matt Kenseth and Joey Logano will officially make their future racing plans public.

In essence, one driver is arriving at Joe Gibbs Racing while the other is leaving.

Ever since Roush Fenway Racing announced Kenseth's departure in June, there's been little secret the Daytona 500 champion was headed to JGR to fill the seat currently occupied by Logano. For some reason, though, Kenseth was unable to talk about his plans until now – an explanation we could get on Tuesday afternoon when JGR holds a press conference at its shop.

Though it was obvious where Kenseth was headed, it was unclear until late August whether Logano would accept JGR's offer to stay with the team – albeit in a reduced role as a full-time Nationwide Series driver – or find another organization.

When AJ Allmendinger was suspended for failing a drug test and Penske Racing's No. 22 car suddenly became available, Logano and his father worked feverishly to try and secure that ride for 2013 and beyond. It worked, and Penske is set to announce it will hire Logano to team with Brad Keselowski.
