Speedway for the season opening CRA Super Series Seal Wrap 125 presented by
Great Deals Savings Magazine on Saturday, May 7.
Ross, the son of NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion Matt Kenseth, will make
his second appearance at Anderson Speedway. He debuted at the high-banked
quarter-mile oval last July in the Welch & Wilson Motorsports Redbud 300
leading the initial 29 circuits and dropping out of contention on lap 64
after mechanical troubles hampered his No. 25 Ford.
“The key for us is to not beat ourselves. Last year I thought we were just

to Anderson and won't be satisfied with anything less than a win,” said Ross
Kenseth competed in a partial CRA Super Series schedule in 2010 with
impressive results. He recorded CRA victories at Winchester Speedway and
Lucas Oil Raceway Park in Indianapolis. Other season highlights for Kenseth
included an ASA Midwest Tour victory at Elko (MN) Speedway and fourth place
points finish in that series.
CRA recently announced that double file restarts will become a regular part
of their events with Anderson Speedway marking the debut for the Super Late

stuff too much. When the time comes to go you want to be in good position to
take the lead.”
Kenseth will have sponsorship backing from Blain’s Farm and Fleet on his
Generation 3 Motorsports Entry.
