Winless Kenseth likes title chances

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Matt Kenseth was a five-time winner this time last year and an established championship threat. He doesn't feel any less confident about his title chances this season even though he has not visited Victory Lane.

Kenseth goes into Atlanta Motor Speedway this weekend winless, but ranked a solid fifth in the Sprint Cup standings. With just two races remaining to set the 16-driver Chase for the Sprint Cup championship field, Kenseth should make it in on points and doesn't feel like he needs to go for broke to get a win in the next two weeks.

"When you try harder than your hardest, that's when you always get in trouble. That's when you wreck," Kenseth said. "I don't know that we even need a win. I believe in momentum, to a certain point, but I don't necessarily need a win. I'd just like to have two solid weeks."
