Kenseth ends 76-race drought with Texas win

Matt Kenseth had a dominating run at
Texas, breaking a 76-race NASCAR Sprint Cup winless streak Saturday
Kenseth led 169 of 334 laps at the 1½-mile, high-banked track
for his 19th career victory, his first since California in February
2009. Since his other win at Texas in 2002, Kenseth had four
runner-up finishes, including last fall behind Denny Hamlin, and
six other top-10 finishes at the track.
This time, the No. 17 Roush Fenway Ford was only trailing late
behind Tony Stewart and Kurt Busch when both of those drivers were
out of sequence on stops and trying to stretch fuel in hopes of
catching a caution. Lucky for Kenseth, there were no yellow flags
at the wrong time.
Kenseth went back ahead to stay with 13 laps to go when Busch
had to make his final stop and give up a 8.2-second lead. Kenseth
finished 8.315 seconds ahead of Clint Bowyer.
