Matt Kenseth has been voted into the 2023 class of the NASCAR hall of fame on his first ballot. The 2003 Cup Series champion won 39 races over a career that spanned 22 seasons.

Kenseth’s last full-time season was in 2017 when he finished seventh in the standings, but he ran part of the 2018 season and came back again in 2020 to fill in for the suspended Kyle Larson at Chip Ganassi Racing for 32 races.

“I never really thought about it,” Kenseth said on a conference call about his prospects for making the Hall of Fame.
