Matt Kenseth Looking Forward to Racing New Faces in SRX
Jul 6, 2022
Bobby Labonte scored his first Camping World SRX Series win on Saturday night at the Nashville Fairgrounds. Labonte finished Heat 1 in the third position followed by a fourth-place finish in Heat 2. For the 75-lap Main Event, Labonte started from the pole position and following a late-race caution, held off a hard charging Marco Andretti and Matt Kenseth to earn the win. Prior to Saturday night, Labonte’s best SRX finish was last season at Lucas Oil Raceway where he finished second to Ernie Francis Jr. This season his best finish was third at South Boston Speedway.
First and foremost, I’ve got to thank the fans for being here tonight and then also, these guys on this SRX group, all these men and women, you won’t believe how hard they work to get these cars to the race track week in and week out.
Andretti finished second for the second week in a row followed by Kenseth who made his SRX Series debut on Saturday night at the Nashville Fairgrounds.
In his first SRX Series race, Josef Newgarden won Heat 1 and local ringer Cole Williams won Heat 2.
Bobby Labonte shot out of a canon right from the start of the feature, so I knew he was a force to reckon with there. I think the fastest car won for sure.
