After his dramatic last-lap pass of Ty Majeski to win the Slinger Nationals last week, Matt Kenseth said he “might just call it a season, one-for-one.”
On second thought, Kenseth will have another race, please.
The 2003 Cup champion is entered in an Aug. 16 Super Late Model race at his home track of Madison International Speedway in Oregon, Wisconsin.
Kenseth is set to compete in the Howie Lettow Classic 100 and will race for a $5,000 prize. It will be the 1994 track champion’s first race at Madison since 2014 when he won his 27th event on the half-mile track.
Kenseth will drive the same No. 8 car he won the Slinger Nationals with.
“I’m looking forward to getting back on the track at Madison,” Kenseth said in a press release. “I have a lot of great memories there, and I’m hoping to make some more. I will never forget the first time my dad brought me there to watch a Super Late Model race. It was the biggest, fastest track I had been to at the time and I was in awe when I heard and saw the Super Lates flying around there. To this day I get excited thinking about the races I have watched and the races that I have won there. There’s nothing like going home.”
