Matt Kenesth to run five Nationwide races for JGR


Matt Kenseth will run five NASCAR Nationwide races for Joe Gibbs Racing in 2013. Kenseth will drive the No. 18 Toyota Camry with sponsorship coming from Reser’s Fine Foods in all five events.

Kenseth did not compete in any Nationwide Series events in 2012 and completed in one in 2011, a win at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

“It’s good to be back in the Nationwide Series,” said Kenseth. “I’m proud to represent Reser’s. Although I know it won’t be easy for me with so much great competition in the Series, I’m hoping I can deliver some fun times with a few wins on the track.”

The first race for Kenseth behind the wheel of the No. 18 car will be at Phoenix in March. He will also drive the car at Texas, Charlotte, Richmond and Kansas.
