#5 Matt Kenseth.
Speaking of Matt Kenseth, he has quite a huge decison to make before the end of the season. While the obvious answer would be for Matt Kenseth to take over Bayne’s ride next year, does the sub par result by Kenseth in the first couple of races hurt the deal at all? Furthermore, does Kenseth even want to stay at Roush Fenway Racing, who are having trouble staying competitive.
In the end, there could be a few good offers at play if Kenseth is willing to hear them. In fact, not only will Kurt Busch’s deal with SHR be expiring at the end of the season, there is also word that Furniture Row racing will be adding another team next year, which means that Kenseth could very well be back in a Toyota when its all said and done.
