Matt Kenseth to sport rookie throwback scheme in Miami finale

In what could be his final Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race, Joe Gibbs Racing veteran Matt Kenseth will drive a car that looks awfully similar to the one he started with 17 years ago.

JGR revealed the look Tuesday, noting the No. 20 Toyota was designed to honor the car he drove in 2000 with team owner Jack Roush.

Kenseth, 45, will not return to Joe Gibbs Racing next year as the team has tabbed Erik Jones to drive the No. 20. The veteran revealed earlier this month at Texas that he was going to take “some time off, whatever that means,” although he stopped short of calling it a retirement.

Kenseth won at Phoenix last week, then was overcome with emotion during his post-race interview.
