Kenseth wins at Slinger with last lap pass

Matt Kenseth pulled off his eighth win at Slinger Speedway following a last lap pass under Ty Majeski.

Kenseth, 47, led just one lap in the event. The 2003 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series champion is not competing this season after running a part time schedule last year.

“Exactly what I’d have done,” Majeski said following the race giving Kenseth credit for the bold move.

“On the restarts I’d be on the outside and he’d get me way wide going into 3 and take off and I’d have to lift to get behind him because I didn’t have any room either. So he could get the lead and get going, that’s what you do as the leader.

“You’re not going to go dump a guy. I had several, several chances to run in the back of him and didn’t, and he was really smart and he was really patient. When I did get in there a foot or so, he’d move up and give me the room.”
