Kenseth overcomes hurdles to win at JGR

DARLINGTON, S.C. (AP) - Matt Kenseth has rarely been more pleased in victory than he was Saturday night at Darlington Raceway. Maybe that's because of what he overcame to achieve the win.

Kenseth has long been one of NASCAR's stars, a past champion with two Daytona 500 titles. But the 41-year-old racer has found a new gear in his first season at Joe Gibbs Racing.

Kenseth passed JGR teammate Kyle Busch with 13 laps left to win for the first time at Darlington and third time this season. The latest win came with replacement crew chief Wally Brown, pressed into service due to the suspension of Jason Ratcliff.

Like most hurdles in Kenseth's way in his career, he drove through it on the way to what he hopes are bigger things ahead.
