Kenseth To Moonlight In SRX At Eldora

NEW YORK, N.Y. — Matt Kenseth will join the Superstar Racing Experience (SRX) field at Eldora Speedway in New Weston, Ohio, on August 10.

Kenseth returns to SRX for his second season after racing three times last year, posting two podium finishes.

Kenseth, a 2023 NASCAR Hall of Fame Inductee, has run 697 races in the Cup Series over 22 years with 39 wins — including two Daytona 500s. Kenseth was the 2003 NASCAR Cup Series champion and the 2004 IROC champion.

“The first time I ever raced on dirt was Eldora, it was at Tony’s Prelude to the dream. My background was all asphalt racing and I remember how much fun I had that night, and said if I could go back and do anything different it would have been to race dirt earlier in my career,” Kenseth said.

“Welcome back to one of the very best short track racers and now a NASCAR Hall of Famer,” said SRX CEO Don Hawk. “Having you back at Eldora was a goal, each race on dirt you got better and better, and perhaps the best is yet to come. Matt’s humble, hungry and smart and were lucky to have him back with SRX this summer.”
