Matt Kenseth

Winning the 2003 Winston Cup Championship on consistency, Nascar driver Matt Kenseth can say he's arrived.

With 25 top 10 finishes, 11 top 5 finishes and one victory at Las Vegas, the 2003 NASCAR schedule was covered with Matt's name. Backed by a Pit Crew that placed 3rd in the World Pit Crew Competition, Kenseth seemed to always be among the leaders. In the end, he was the Champ.

Born March 10,1972 in Cambridge, Wisconsin, Matt got an early appreciation for racoing from his father, Roy. A first race car at age 16 led to an ARTGO Challenge Series win at 18. Pretty soon came the Busch Grand National Series where he quickly made a name for himself.
