Looking to Finish Strong in Phoenix

Matt Kenseth – Phoenix Advance Team: No. 6 Wyndham Rewards Ford Fusion

Crew Chief: Matt Puccia

Can-Am 500 – Sunday, November 11 at 2:30 p.m. EST on NBC, MRN, SiriusXM 90

Kenseth on racing at Phoenix:

“It’s always good to come back to a track when you’re the defending race winner. Those are great memories, and that win will always be special to me. This weekend should be interesting because of all the changes to the track. It will still drive the same, but with the new start-finish line just before the dogleg, and the new pit road configuration, it will be a little different once we get into the race. I’m looking forward to the weekend, and doing what we can to put two good races together for the 6 team and finish the season strong.”
