Matt Kenseth Hoping for Success at Kentucky

Todd Warshaw/Getty Images for NASCAR(NEW YORK) -- Matt Kenseth is still seeking his first Sprint Cup victory of the season and is the defending race winner at Kentucky Speedway, where NASCAR will be on Saturday night.

Kenseth has three top-10 finishes in three starts and is hoping to get Joe Gibbs Racing in Victory Lane.

"I don't know if I would say our best opportunity," Kenseth said on Tuesday.  "I'm not even sure how many races we've run this year, 15 or 16, but I feel like the way we ran last year, any one of those races with the exception of maybe last weekend would have been a good chance for us to get up there and get a win."

Kenseth sits 11th in the standings, but one win gives Joe Gibbs Racing a better chance at a Chase berth.

"You know, we'll see what happens," Kenseth continued.  "It was a good track for us last year for sure, so you know, hopefully we'll get there this weekend and have some speed and hopefully be a factor."
