(WNFL) - Cambridge native Matt Kenseth says he's happy to have even a small chance of winning the NASCAR Sprint Cup season championship on Sunday. Kenseth is second in the point standings going into the final event in the Chase for the Sprint Cup, the Ford Eco-Boost 400 at Homestead Florida near Miami. Jimmie Johnson will win the crown if he finishes 23rd-or-higher, regardless of where the other contenders finish. Kenseth says anything can happen -- and in case it does, he wants to be in-or-near first place. Kenseth, the 2003 series champion, said it’s been seven years since he was mathematically in contention for the crown – and such opportunities do not come along all that often. Paul Menard of Eau Claire is also entered in the final race of the NASCAR season, along with Beloit-born Danica Patrick and Travis Kvapil of Janesville. Kenseth is also entered for the Nationwide Series finale on Saturday, the Ford Eco-Boost 300. Johnny Sauter of Necedah is fourth going into the Camping World Truck Series' Ford Eco-Boost 200 tonight at Homestead. Sauter is fourth in the truck standings. Kvapil is also entered in tonight's event.
