Matt Kenseth choked back his words a bit when he got to Victory Lane, then fumbled with his sunglasses in a futile attempt to hide his emotions.

His 14-year run at Roush Fenway Racing is in the homestretch and Kenseth is going out with class and dignity.

He slammed his No. 17 Ford hard into the wall at Kansas Speedway midway through Sunday's race. He went to pit road to let crew chief Jimmy Fennig fix the car, then drove it to his second win in three weeks.

The bond with his team was clear in the post-race celebration, as Kenseth tried to play it cool as he fought to hold back his tears.

He's leaving the team in one more month to drive for Joe Gibbs Racing next season.
