Martinsville - Joe Gibbs Racing driver Matt Kenseth made a stop at Martinsville Speedway Thursday. Kenseth and all the Cup drivers will race at the half-mile track two weeks from Sunday. He nearly won the fall race at Martinsville, finishing second to Jeff Gordon. Kenseth is happy about NASCAR addressing safety concerns and banning cool-down laps during knockout qualifying.
Matt Kenseth, SECOND IN MARTINSVILLE FALL RACE, said "It'll be a lot less stressful, so all that riding around and everything nothing happened but I don't ever think you should wait for something to happen to make a rule change."
