After this incident on Sunday in Martinsville one driver is left suspended from competition for two weeks.
Joe Gibbs Racing Driver Matt Kenseth has been suspended for the next two weeks after deliberately wrecking Joey Logano. This all began at Kansas 4 weeks ago when Joey Logano was racing for a victory and made contact with Matt Kenseth sending him in a spin cycle and ultimately putting Matt Kenseth into a must win situation at Talladega which ultimately led to Matt Kesneth being eliminated from the chase.
My opinion of the penalty is that it wasn't enough because of the fact that Matt Kenseth can come back at Homestead with Joey Logano in the Championship Four and could ultimately cost Joey Logano the championship.
As we hear Joe Gibbs Racing will appeal the penalty but I won't expect the appeal to be granted. Erik Jones, Daniel Suarez and a few other drivers are top candidates to drive the 20 in place for Matt Kenseth.(Koelle, 2015)

|Jeremy Clements Racing with Series Champion Chase Elliott This Season|
|Jeremy Clements Racing is Owned by Jeremy and his father|
found being talked about and put on TV.
So far in 2015 Jeremy Clements has had one Top 10 at Dover while completing 28 of 30 races.
|My Friend Jay Lopez who made our logo met Jeremy|
at Charlotte earlier this year!
From Chicago to Kansas Jeremy has finished inside of the top 20 11 out of the 17 races with only one DNF at Richmond where he was involved in a crash. Jeremy continues to do so well with the little he has. As I heard earlier this year from one of my friends who works in the NASCAR Xfinity Series that Jeremy should be titled the King of The Underfunded Drivers by how well he goes out and races in the little funded cars he drives and continues to impress.
So far in 2015 Jeremy has an Average start of 21.7 while his average finish is 19.4 which is his best Average Finish of his 10 year career and it has only gotten better. Look for Jeremy to be up front in the near future if not in victory lane. (Koelle, 2015)
Daniel Hemric will pilot the #19 Ford F-150 Entry with sponsorship backing from Sponsors California Clean Power and Cequent.
Brad Keselowski Racing also announced that Tyler Reddick, who has been a top contender for the 2015 Camping World Truck Series Title, will be moving over to the #29 for a second full time season with Brad Keselowski.
That ride that Tyler Reddick will be driving in 2016 was the truck that has had Austin Theriault, Brian and
Brad Keselowski, along with Joey Logano and Ryan Blaney behind the wheel but no word as of late on if BKR will run a 3rd Truck or if Brad is making the transition to full time Truck Series Drivers like Kyle Busch Motorsports have done and will do in 2016 with Christopher Bell, William Byron in full time rides, while Daniel Suarez and Cody Coughlin will share a ride. Along with that GMS Racing will have Johnny Sauter and Spencer Galagher leaving Austin Dillon without a
truck ride for 2016. Could 2016 be Cup Driver Less? (Koelle, 2015)
This season, the ten year anniversary of my first race, I have had the opportunity to see Jeff Gordon lead the Daytona 500 to green along with the Talladega Race in October. Over the years I met Jeff Gordon 2 times both moments special to me. The first time was in 2014 at Bristol. I had my program and sharpie in hand as Jeff Gordon walked to his car for Qualifying. He looked at all the diecast that were around me and then saw my program and he signed it and walked to his car. The second time I met Jeff Gordon was at Bristol in August. Where he raced the famous Rainbow Colors that he had made so popular over the years. As he was walking to Driver Intros he saw me and put his hand out to shake my hand along with a few other people who had diecasts in hand to get signed. To have Jeff Gordon want to shake you hand is Awesome in itself.
Jeff Will Ultimately be missed by many but I think he is beginning to notice that Chase Elliott needs an opportunity Just like Jeff was given in 1992. Jeff is a future Hall Of Famer and he deserves a spot on the Hall Of Fame along with other legendary drivers and owners. Everyone will truely remember Jeff Gordon especially after 2015. (Koelle, 2015)
