Matt Kenseth Leaving Roush-Fenway Racing After 2012 Season

5

According to multiple sources, Matt Kenseth will be leaving Roush-Fenway Racing at the end of the season and will be replaced by defending Nationwide Series champion Ricky Stenhouse Jr. The following is a statement from Jamie Allison, director of Ford Racing: "All of us at Ford are certainly disappointed to hear that Matt will be leaving, and he will be certainly missed by us and the Ford Racing fans. We are thankful for Matt's winning efforts and championship-caliber success with the Roush and Ford racing programs these past 16 years, both on and off the track. We will focus on this year and look forward to more success on the track in his No. 17 Ford Fusion this season." Reading into that quote, it's likely a safe bet that Kenseth won't land at another Ford team such as Richard Petty Motorsports or Wood Brothers Racing. Roush Fenway president Steve Newmark has said that the decision to part ways was "amicable" between Kenseth and Jack Roush. Kenseth has been mum on his contract talks all season, but the leading contenders to sign the 2003 champion appears to be either Joe Gibbs Racing or Richard Childress Racing. We'll have more on the story as it develops. What are your thoughts on the pipebomb announcement by Roush-Fenway Racing? Where will Kenseth sign and what sort of success will Stenhouse Jr. have as a full-time Cup Series driver? Tell us in the comments section below.
