Exciting news from Nascar
The one who won
It was good luck for Kenseth when his third win came on the occasion of his 41st birthday. You must have seen all the exciting news breaking out on blogs and sites if not on the television. The main reason was the superb condition of Math Kenseth’ car. It has performed well for the third time in three consecutive races this season. The number twenty team was especially happy to see it pay off in the final round. Kenseth and his Dollar General Toyota car piloted to a win on Sunday at the Kobalt Tools 400 race on the Las Vegas Motor Speedway event. The race was on his birthday and he was charged to hold off Kasey Kahne in the final 30 laps. It was certainly a duel to match and watch. The victory lap came when the late pit stop came on and Kenseth merely refueled. After that he was out on the pit road and onto his winning streak when other cars were busy getting two car tires replaced.
