TC Daily Pit Stop: Matt Kenseth Added to 75 Greatest Driver List; Kerry and Toby Go Off on The Final Lap Weekly; More Throwback Schemes
TC Daily Pit Stop: Thursday, May 11th, 2023
On Wednesday, 2003 NASCAR Cup Series champion Matt Kenseth was named to the NASCAR 75 Greatest Drivers List. Kenseth becomes the 74th driver announced to the prestigious list of the greatest to ever drive in the sport, which will all be honored this weekend at Darlington Raceway.
Kenseth won 39 NASCAR Cup Series races in his career, including two Daytona 500 wins, the 2000 Coca-Cola 600 and the 2013 Southern 500.
There is one driver left to be announced, and with Jimmie Johnson not yet named to the list, you would imagine the seven-time NASCAR Cup Series champion would be the final name added.
Toby and Kerry were VERY opinionated on this week’s episode of The Final Lap Weekly Podcast. Kerry called out Denny Hamlin for being a hypocrite for wrecking Kyle Larson to win Sunday’s race at Kansas, while Toby has had enough of spineless drivers not having the courage to confront Ross Chastain when they’re mad at him, and instead encouraging Noah Gragson to go do their dirty work.
Here’s a preview clip from this week’s show:

We have made it to NASCAR Throwback Weekend, and there are A LOT of paint schemes paying tribute to some of the greatest drivers of all-time that will be on display during this weekend’s NASCAR Cup, Xfinity and Truck Races.
There are several Kevin Harvick-inspired paint schemes such as this Sheldon Creed throwback to Harvick’s No. 2 ACDELCO car that he won the 2001 NASCAR Busch Series championship with.
