Matt Kenseth driving rookie paint scheme at Homestead

If Sunday is to be Matt Kenseth’s last race in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series then it will end with him driving a car that looks like his first cup ride.

Kenseth’s No. 20 DeWalt Toyota will look much like the No. 17 DeWalt Ford he drove when his career began back in 2000. Kenseth won his 39th Cup Series race last weekend at Phoenix International Raceway.

In his 18 year career Kenseth was the 2000 Rookie of the Year, 2003 Series Champion and twice won the Daytona 500.

Kenseth did not mention the word retirement but did say he did not have a ride for the 2018 season.
