Winless in 2014, Joe Gibbs Racing driver is a favorite to win on the 1.5-mile track

Matt Kenseth won a career-high seven Sprint Cup races last season, but he's yet to visit Victory Lane through the first 10 races of 2014. That could change Saturday night when Kenseth competes in the 5-Hour Energy 400 at Kansas Speedway. Kenseth has won two of the last three Sprint Cup Series races at Kansas. He won the pole in record time there last spring, and led 110 of the first 111 laps on his way to the win. Kenseth has six top-5 finishes in his 16 career starts on the 1.5-mile track. Of the 12 poles he's won over his 518 career races in the premier series, two of them have come at Kansas.
