Matt Kenseth to Run Nationwide Series Race in Memphis

Add Matt Kenseth to the growing list of NASCAR Sprint Cup Super Stars who are heading to Memphis this fall for the Nationwide Series race at the MotorSports Park.

Kenseth, the winner of this years' Daytona 500, and the 2003 Sprint Cup Series Championship, says he'll be behind the wheel of the Number-16 for Roush Fenway Racing when the Memphis event gets underway October 24th.

Defending Memphis champ Carl Edwards is coming back for another run...and possibly another Back Flip.

And Kyle Bush says he'll run at the MotorSports Park as well.

Kenseth will have local racer Ricky Stenhouse, Jr. of Olive Branch Qualify his ride here..

It'll be double-duty for Kenseth on Race Day... He's also running in the coinciding Sprint Cup Race at Martinsville, and will fly to Memphis after that race is done.
