CONCORD, N.C. – Roush Fenway Racing officials announced Wednesday that Matt Kenseth will pilot the team’s flagship No. 6 Ford for 10 additional races this season.
Kenseth made his return to Roush Fenway earlier this year at Kansas Speedway and has already raced for five consecutive weeks at the helm of the No. 6 Ford, including during the Monster Energy NASCAR All-Star Race on May 19 at Charlotte (N.C.) Motor Speedway, where he started from the pole.
Starting on July 14 at Kentucky Speedway, Kenseth’s summer stretch of four-straight race weekends will conclude at Watkins Glen Int’l on Aug. 5.
After Kentucky, Kenseth will be behind the wheel of the car at New Hampshire Motor Speedway on July 22, Pocono Raceway on July 29 and Watkins Glen on Aug. 5 – tracks where the Cambridge, Wis., native has earned a combined five victories.
The 2003 NASCAR Cup Series champion will then make back-to-back appearances at Darlington Raceway on Sept. 2 and Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Sept. 9, racing in two of NASCAR’s crown jewel events – the Southern 500 and Brickyard 400.
Kenseth has 12 top-five finishes between Indianapolis and Darlington over the course of his career.
His fall schedule then moves to Dover Int’l Speedway on Oct. 7 before concluding with three of the final four races in Martinsville Speedway on Oct. 28, ISM Raceway near Phoenix on Nov. 11 – where he is the defending race winner – and the season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway on Nov. 18.
Additional races for Kenseth are still under consideration.
Wyndham Rewards was previously confirmed to sponsor Kenseth for the events at Indianapolis, Dover, Phoenix and Homestead on May 10.
All told, Kenseth boasts 12 wins, 67 top-fives and 135 top-10s across the 10 remaining tracks on his 2018 schedule.
Kenseth’s best finish of the season since returning to Roush Fenway Racing was a 13th-place effort at Pocono (Pa.) Raceway on June 3.
