CONCORD, N.C. (AP) - Matt Kenseth is ready to get back to work.
Kenseth and his first-year team at Joe Gibbs Racing have had plenty to celebrate this season with a Sprint Cup-best three victories and seven top-10 finishes in 11 events. But Kenseth wasn't a factor in last week's all-star race at Charlotte Motor Speedway and knows he's got some challenges to overcome before getting back to his winning ways at the Coca-Cola 600 Sunday night.
Judging from Kenseth's past performances here, he might only need a couple of fast laps to turn things around. The 2003 champion won the circuit's longest race in 2000, then finished among the top 10 in eight of the next 12.
Kenseth says the all-star format is unique and generally doesn't yield much data for the 600.
