Kenseth Kicks Off "speeding To Read" Program At Tms - Yahoo Sports

Michael J. Dubesa, Jr. - Chronicle-Telegram

Education is obviously important. It has always been important, but I think its really important in the society that we live in with things so technologically driven. Its easy today with all the advances in technology to not take time and actually grab a book and read when you can play a video game or do something else. Its cool to see all the kids come out here, all the kids being excited about reading and trying to win for their respective schools. Its fun to see all that excitement. The excitement for Kenseth begins this week as the reformatted, elimination-style Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup opens with Sundays race at Chicagoland Speedway (ESPN, Noon CT). Its a really unique format, Kenseth said. Im really curious to see how it all works out. It should be interesting. I hope that we can win Chicago so the pressure is not on us and we can go race the next couple weeks and get ready for the next one.Its going to be exciting. Obviously, it is your goal to go to Homestead to be in one of those four cars with a shot. I hope we can do that, but youve got to get through it one round at a time. Kenseth returns to Texas Motor Speedway on Sunday, Nov. 2, for the AAA Texas 500, the eighth race in the 10-event Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup. The AAA Texas 500 is now part of the three-race Eliminator segment, which opens in Martinsville (Va.), shifts to Texas and then on to Phoenix. The field will be trimmed from eight to four contenders after this three-race segment and that foursome will go head-to-head at the Nov. 16 season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway to determine the Sprint Cup Series champion. Should Kenseth, seeded 14th in the 16-driver Chase field but annually a contender, advance to the Eliminator round, Texas Motor Speedway could be pivotal to his hopes of pursuing another series title. He has two victories (2002, spring of 11), ranks first with a career finishing average of 8.3, and ranks first in career top-five finishes (13 in 23 starts) and tied for the top spot with Jimmie Johnson for career top-10 finishes (16). Its funny how things change, said Kenseth, who joined Joe Gibbs Racing last year after previously spending his entire career at Roush Fenway Racing. Before I came to Joe Gibbs Racing, there were a few tracks where I felt were terrible tracks for me and some tracks that were way better.This was one that was one of my best. When I went over there some of the tracks I thought were my worst and I was really bad at ended up being some of my best tracks, New Hampshire and Martinsville.
