POINTS LEADERS in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series are usually as secure in their jobs as tenured college professors. Not Matt Kenseth.
Kenseth, who holds a 14-point lead over Dale Earnhardt Jr., will be leaving Roush Fenway Racing at the end of this season after 14 years. The 2003 Cup champion has 22 career Cup wins.
Speculation has the two-time Daytona 500 winner moving to Joe Gibbs Racing, as a replacement for Joey Logano or in a fourth JGR car. Logano's contract expires after this season.
