CONCORD, N.C. (AP) -- Matt Kenseth has signed a multiyear contract extension with Roush Fenway Racing to continue driving the No. 17 Ford.
The deal comes at the end of one of Kenseth's most disappointing NASCAR seasons. He failed to win a race for the first time since 2001, and his 11th-place finish in the Sprint Cup standings was his lowest since that season. But the 2003 Sprint Cup champion has been with Roush since 1998, winning 16 series races. Roush also re-signed Carl Edwards and Greg Biffle this year, and
the extension for Kenseth means either David Ragan or Jamie McMurray will have to leave the organization at the end of 2009.
