Kenseth, Biffle finish top five; Biffle maintains points lead
KANSAS CITY, Kansas (April22, 2012) – Matt Kenseth finished fourth to lead a trio of Roush Fenway Fords in top 10 in Sunday’s Sprint Cup race at Kansas Speedway. Fellow RFR teammates Greg Biffle and Carl Edwards finished fifth and ninth. Biffle used the finish to maintain his Sprint Cup point lead, while Edwards moved up two spots to ninth in the standings. After eight races Roush has three cars in the top nine in the standings, with Kenseth sitting at third.
“It was a good run for us – not great,” said Kenseth. “I wish we could have got up there and mixed it up with the top two a little bit more, but overall, it was a solid day. We had good pit stops. Jimmy and the guys made great adjustments on our car to make it better from yesterday to today.”
“That was a good effort,” said Edwards. “It wasn’t a great result, but a really good effort. I had a lot of fun racing Kyle (Busch) at the end. That was really neat. I acted like we were racing for the win and I think he was doing the same thing, so at least we got to have a little fun. That was a good time. If that’s the worst Roush Fenway Ford, then we’re going be OK.”
Roush Fenway and NASCAR return to action next weekend at Richmond International Raceway, where RFR has won 14 races and turned over89,000 laps in NASCAR action.
