As part of Wednesday’s news conference, Roush Fenway Racing officials announced that Wyndham Rewards would serve as the “anchor” sponsor for Kenseth and the No.
Kenseth also plans to run the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series All-Star Race at Charlotte Motor Speedway (May 19, 8 p.m.
Kenseth’s history with team owner Jack Roush runs deep, starting with a five-year audition at the Cup level in 1999 and a full-season rookie campaign one year later in the No.
That included a rousing victory last November at ISM Raceway, months after it was decided that his term with JGR was drawing to a close and that 21-year-old Erik Jones would succeed him.
In what was presumed to be his final race the following weekend at Homestead-Miami Speedway, Kenseth competed with a throwback paint scheme that took cues from his first Cup ride, and he shared the farewell ceremonies with Dale Earnhardt Jr., who had announced earlier in the year that 2017 would mark his last.
Bayne announced near the end of the 2013 season that he had been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, but that he was medically cleared to continue his racing career.
