Defending Champ Kenseth to Compete for Fourth-Career Win at 2014 IRWIN Tools Night Race
Though Darrell Waltrip still owns the all-time IRWIN Tools Night Race record of seven, defending champion Matt Kenseth will have the chance to inch a bit closer to the mark when the 2014 edition at Bristol Motor Speedway gets underway on Aug. 23. In action last summer, Kenseth edged out Kasey Kahne and Juan Pablo Montoya to claim the top spot at the event for the first time since repeating back in 2005 and 2006. With three career victories, he now trails only Waltrip, Cale Yarborough (5), and the late Dale Earnhardt (4). Over the last 10 years, the race has produced six different winners including Kenseth, Dale Earnhardt, Jr., Carl Edwards, Kyle Busch, Brad Keselowski, and Denny Hamlin.
As July comes to a close, all six previous winners could very well be in contention for another triumph come August, as each has largely remained inside the top-15 of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series standings for much of the season. Veteran Jeff Gordon has been a consistent fixture at the top, though closely trailing him in order is Earnhardt, Jr., Keselowski, Kenseth, Jimmie Johnson, Edwards, Ryan Newman, Kyle Busch, Joey Logano, and Clint Bowyer in the top 10. Interestingly enough, Gordon has won the IRWIN Tools Night Race only once back in 2002 and as of July 24, has registered just one win for 2014, though has been buoyed by consistent top-five and top-10 finishes.
