Matt Kenseth leads 21 laps at Daytona, only to finish in a wreck (video)

Matt Kenseth reflects on his disappointing finish to the Coke Zero 400 in Daytona.

Matt Kenseth – and for that matter, his three other Joe Gibbs Racing teammates – still have yet to earn one NASCAR Cup race between them in 2017.

Saturday’s Coke Zero was yet another example of what has been JGR’s story thus far this season: All four drivers ran strong – including three that led at some point – but none finished that way.

Kenseth, who led 21 laps, finished 27th after being involved in a wreck six laps shy of the scheduled 160 laps (it wound up adding four laps in overtime).

He talked after the race about his performance and where his team goes from here, knowing there are only nine races to qualify for the NASCAR Cup playoffs.
