Matt Kenseth returning to NASCAR with Roush Fenway Racing

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Roush Fenway Racing wants to be among NASCAR's elite again and recognized it needed help for its ongoing rebuild.

The organization called on Matt Kenseth, one of its cornerstone former drivers, and asked him to come back. When Kenseth took the call from team owner Jack Roush, he had just one question: What took the team owner so long to reach out?

"What took so long is there was a rawness from him leaving me," Roush said Wednesday at the NASCAR Hall of Fame.
