Matt Kenseth is seventh in the standings with 93 points; 36 points behind leader Jimmie Johnson.
In the Kobalt Tools 400, Kenseth captured his first win of the year. He held off hard-charging Kasey Kahne over the final 30 laps to get the victory on his birthday -- one of only three NASCAR Sprint Cup Series drivers to accomplish that feat. The victory vaulted Kenseth 11 spots up the standings. This week: In 26 starts at Bristol, he has two wins, 10 top fives, 17 top 10s and one pole. For races in the past eight years at Bristol, Kenseth ranks second out of 47 drivers with an average place of 10.7.-NASCAR.com
