Matt Kenseth looks for fresh start

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — Driving for a new team, with a new sponsor, behind the wheel of a new car, and paired with a new crew chief and two new teammates, everything old seems new again for Matt Kenseth.

After driving the last 14 years in the No. 17 Ford fielded by Roush Fenway Racing, the only team for which he’s ever competed in NAS­CAR Sprint Cup, Kenseth, 40, will make a fresh start in Sunday’s 55th Daytona 500.
