FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - Matt Kenseth is finally feeling like a contender again. A trip to Victory Lane will do that for you.
The 2003 Sprint Cup champion snapped a two-year, 76-race winless streak with a dominating run at Texas on Saturday night. It was his first win since opening 2009 with consecutive victories at Daytona and California.
Kenseth led 169 of 334 laps at the 1 1/2-mile, high-banked Texas Motor Speedway. His three Roush Fenway teammates also finished high. Carl Edwards was third, Greg Biffle fourth and polesitter David Ragan seventh.
Kenseth says the win is a big relief and gives him a lot of confidence.
The victory pushed Kenseth up six spots to third in season points behind Edwards and Kyle Busch.
