A couple weeks ago, Kyle Larson was let go by Chip Ganassi Racing for using racial slurs during an iRacing event, and now they have found their replacement for the rest of 2020 - Matt Kenseth, according to the AP:

Kenseth, 48, last raced in 2018, but has a Hall of Fame resume - he was Rookie of the Year,  won the Winston Cup in 2003 and won the Daytona 500 twice, among other accolades.

The Cambridge, WI native could be playoff eligible if NASCAR decides to accept Ganassi Racing's petition.

He will race in the #42 Chevy this season.
