Roughly two months into the season, Mark Martin was having a conversation with Matt Kenseth about the fast start to Kenseth's year. Kenseth had grabbed two wins in his first eight races with Joe Gibbs Racing, and Martin believed his former teammate could have legitimately won all eight of the events.
He followed his win in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship opener at Chicagoland with his series-high seventh victory of the season. Kenseth made his 500th career start and built a 14-point lead over Busch before the series shifts to Dover.
Kyle Busch had the attention of about 75 airmen at Dover Air Force Base when one asked the NASCAR star if he had any side bets with his brother, Kurt, about who would come out on top of the Chase.

It was exactly one year ago that word began to spread that Matt Kenseth had privately told Jack Roush he was leaving the organization after 14 years. Kenseth planned to move to Joe Gibbs Racing, and the decision was a NASCAR stunner.

Kurt Busch had another date with a tow truck.

Matt Kenseth had to choke back his words when he got to Victory Lane, fumbling with his sunglasses in an attempt to hide his emotions.
Matt Kenseth didn't get left dancing without a partner at Talladega Superspeedway this time.
With a quarter century in NASCAR, Jack Roush has the experience to know when to be patient and when to get more actively involved.
"As with any season we always sit down at the end of the year and evaluate where we are, what we have and what we think are the best options to put our teams in the best position to compete for wins and championships," said team owner Jack Roush. "In this case, a reorganization that realigns Ricky and Mike, allows Scott to work with Chris, and reunites Chad with Trevor, made the most sense."
