We’re ecstatic to welcome Cambridge, Wisconsin native and championship-winning stock car racer Matt Kenseth to Road America next weekend for the CTech Manufacturing 180 NASCAR Xfinity race! Matt will be heading up responsibilities as Grand Marshal; which he says “…is a big honor to be the Grand Marshal of such a big race. It is also close to my home. It is very nice to be honored with this and I am glad CTECH Manufacturing selected me for this year's event, this means a tremendous amount to me."
Kenseth has enjoyed a storied 21-year NASCAR career; earning the final Winston Cup Series Championship in 2003, winning the Daytona 500 twice, and becoming IROC Champion. The bulk of his achievements were earned primarily while driving for Roush/Fenway racing. After driving part-time for Joe Gibbs Racing in 2017 and again for Roush/Fenway in 2018, Matt has since returned to his roots in short-track racing. As we type this update, he’s getting ready to drive in the Howie Lettow 100 at Madison International Speedway, behind the wheel of an ARCA racecar. Just last month, Kenseth also earned his 8th Slinger National title at Slinger Speedway; another local short-track where his roots in stock car racing preside.
Matt will have a very busy schedule at the CTech 180; beginning with a special go-kart race held at the CTech Manufacturing Motorplex located on the infield of Road America’s 4-mile road racing track. The ‘CTech Challenge’, as it will be called, will see wheel-to-wheel karting action between Matt and a few select CTech employees. Bragging rights are very much on the line in this early-morning event before the days’ festivities. Fans will also have the opportunity to meet Matt face-to-face and get his autograph at CTech’s main booth on race day, which will be located near Victory Lane.
