Sources are telling TNI, Roush Fenway executives announced to the organization today that Matt Kenseth would be leaving the team at the end of the season.
Despite earlier rumors that Penske would be Kenseth’s destination, all signs indicate Joe Gibbs Racing as the driver’s future home. What that means for the Gibbs teams is not entirely clear. The team does have room for expansion.
Roush has struggled this season to secure full sponsorship for the one time Sprint Cup Series champion and 22-time winner. With money tight, we are hearing Roush was unwilling to offer the contract the 40-year-old Kenseth was seeking.
We will keep you posted as we get more details.
