Matt Kenseth has no current plans for future in NASCAR

By The Associated Press

BRISTOL, Tenn. (AP) — Matt Kenseth still doesn't have a job lined up for next season and the two-time Daytona 500 winner doesn't really want to discuss his situation.

Kenseth is in the final year of his contract with Joe Gibbs Racing and the team has said Erik Jones will drive the No. 20 Toyota next year. The move left Kenseth without a ride, and seats are extremely hard for veterans to land in this current climate.

Team owners have found younger, unproven drivers are much cheaper to hire as sponsorship dollars are declining.

Asked Friday at Bristol Motor Speedway if he has anything for next year, Kenseth said: "No, not at the moment. When I do, I'll tweet something. Like on a Monday or something. No plans right now. Just raise kids and hang out with my family."
