Matt Kenseth Breaks Through at Texas Capping Highly Successful Weekend for Roush Fenway

Finally, Matt Kenseth got to drive his No. 17 Ford back to Victory Lane.

The Roush Fenway driver picked up his first win in 76 races on Saturday night winning the Samsung Mobile 500 at Texas Motor Speedway.

For Kenseth, it is the 19th win of his career and his first since winning the 2009 Auto Club 500, a win that followed up his Daytona 500 victory to open the season.

Kenseth, who led 169 of the race's 334 laps, was able to pass Kurt Busch with 13 laps to go. While Busch had to pit for more fuel, Kenseth was able to stay out, eventually picking up the checkered.

It was a good night for Roush Fenway, and not just because of Kenseth's win. Carl Edwards followed up his Friday night Nationwide win by finishing third behind Kenseth and Clint Bowyer. Joining Kenseth and Edwards in the top 10 were Roush Fenway teammates Greg Biffle who finished fourth and David Ragan who finished seventh.
