Kenseth began stock car racing in 1988 at the age of 16 at Madison International Speedway; he had already won his first feature event by his third race. By the time he was 19 years old, Matt was already racing against famous drivers such as Ted Musgrave, Dick Trickle and Rich Bickle. Soon after, Kenseth became the youngest winner in ARTGO Challenge Series history by winning in LaCrosse, Wisconsin. During the ‘90s, his career rapidly expanded as Matt won races and track titles across the state – in 1994 he set the record for the youngest driver to win the Miller Genuine Draft National Championships. This was a solid start to his net worth.

After a few more successful runs during the following years, Kenseth was asked by fellow racer Robbie Reiser to drive for his team in the NASCAR Nationwide Series in 1997. The team debuted in April that year, finishing 11th at Nashville Speedway – the same year, Matt earned second place in the Rookie of the Year battle. The next year he made his Cup debut when substituting for Bill Elliott, and in 1999 he finished third in the Nationwide series points. In 2000, Matt and his team went full-time Cup racing and won their first career Cup race at the Coca-Cola 600; Matt was subsequently named 2000 Raybestos Rookie of the Year. With his no. 17 crew he won his second straight Unocal 76/Rockingham World Pit Crew Competition, setting a new record when completing a full pit stopping in 16.81 seconds.

In 2003 he won the Cup title, and earned the prestigious International Race of Champions title. During the following years, Kenseth won back-to-back Bristol night races, joining Dale Earnhardt, Jr in doing so. Apart from this, Matt became one of three drivers who made the Chase for the Cup in each of its first three seasons. Kenseth earned his place in the NASCAR Chase in 2008 and a year later he won the NASCAR version of the Super Bowl – the Daytona 500. The year 2013 turned out to be the best so far in Matt’s career. Of his seven wins in this year, four of them were at tracks he had never won at in the Sprint Cup Series. The following season was, however, equally successful as he achieved 13 top-five and 22 top-10 finishes also winning in the Budweiser Duel at Daytona the same year. Kenseth’s third season behind the No.20 Toyota wheel started in 2015. This was the year he earned a career-high four pole awards and set two track records.

When it comes to Kenseth’s personal life, he married Katie Martin in 2000 and the couple have three daughters. Matt also has a son from a previous relationship.
