Ford statement on Matt Kenseth's departure from Roush

   Statement from Jamie Allison, director, Ford Racing on the Matt Kenseth announcement by Roush Fenway Racing:

   JAMIE ALLISON -- "All of us at Ford are certainly disappointed to hear that Matt will be leaving, and he will be certainly missed by us and the Ford Racing fans. We are thankful for Matt's winning efforts and championship-caliber success with the Roush and Ford racing programs these past 16 years, both on and off the track. We will focus on this year and look forward to more success on the track in his No. 17 Ford Fusion this season."


  1. So is this response a sign that Matt ISN'T going to Penske where he would be staying with Ford? I would think they'd have said "... will be leaving Roush, " if they knew he was going to Penske.

    1. I think it's safe to say yes. I would put money on him going to Gibbs. That seems to be the only top team left with sponsorship and money to afford him. Still to early to guess.
