It seemed like Matt Kenseth would retire at Roush-Fenway Racing but it was announced today that Kenseth would leave Roush and be replaced in the 17 by 2011 Nationwide Series Champion Ricky Stenhouse Jr. Stenhouse will be a good Cup Series driver but it is definitely a surprise to see Kenseth out at Roush especially since he is the points leader on the Cup series. Kenseth has had some sponsorship issues and Kenseth's salary would had been way more than the up-and-coming Stenhouse. However, Kenseth might have a deal already in place as he will be in a top quality ride next season. Kenseth will not end up at another Ford team most likely as Ford said they were sad to lose Kenseth from a Ford team which means he will not be headed for Penske or Richard Petty Motorsports. Kenseth is likely to end up at Joe Gibbs Racing as they have thought about expanding to four teams and Kenseth could also replace Joey Logano as Home Depot may want an upgrade in the 20 car. This could move Joey Logano to a fourth car sponsored by possibly Dollar General and GameStop. If Kenseth does not end up at Gibbs, he could end up at Michael Waltrip Racing as they have thought about expanding to four teams with Kenseth possibly being a third full time driver. Kenseth could definitely look at going to Waltrip as their two full time drivers (Clint Bowyer and Martin Truex Jr) are in the top 10 in points. Logano could also end up at Waltrip if Kenseth replaces him at Gibbs as Toyota would love to keep one of the Cup Series's biggest up-and-comers. Matt Kenseth will be in a quality ride as the first domino has fallen in the 2012 NASCAR silly season.
