Lots of people in the racing world mistake Matt Kenseth’s laconic personality for a lack of insight.
They could not be further from the truth.
The Wisconsin native, in fact, is as insightful as anyone in NASCAR, he just chooses to use way fewer word to demonstrate it.
While a Brad Keselowski can, and will, wax eloquently on almost any manner of subject to do with stock car racing, or the world in general, Kenseth likes to get to the point and stay there.
Take for example, his win this past Sunday in the STP 400 at Kansas Speedway, where he started from the pole in the No 18 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota and in very workman like fashion, won the race.
Kenseth was asked afterwards to comment on how it was he was able to do just that.
“As far as winning from the pole, I mean, the fastest car is supposed to win, right?” he said.
“That’s what racing is all about.”
You see, direct and to the point.
