While Cambridge, Wis., native Matt Kenseth is perhaps best known as the final Winston Cup champion, he also has garnered quite a reputation on short tracks.
As with most successful drivers, Kenseth's family introduced him to racing. His father, Roy, made him a deal when he turned 13. Roy bought a racecar and said he would race it if Matt would work on it. Then, when Matt turned 16, he would turn the keys over to his son.
That day finally arrived in 1988, and Matt entered his first stock car race. Two races later, Kenseth had his first feature-event victory.
By the time Matt was 19, he had moved up to the competitive Wisconsin late model circuit, where he became the youngest ARTGO Challenge Series winner in history, a record that was held previously by his Roush Racing teammate, Mark Martin.
In a three-year span, Kenseth garnered 46 super-late model victories, including the Alan Kulwicki Memorial Race and track championships at Madison International Speedway and Wisconsin International Raceway. He also became the youngest winner of the Miller Genuine Draft National Championship.
