CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Matt Kenseth had transitioned into a full-time father after retiring from NASCAR.

He found running marathons filled his competitive urge.

But the two-time Daytona 500 winner and former NASCAR champion is back.

Chip Ganassi Racing hired him to replace Kyle Larson.

Kenseth saw an opportunity to win with a competitive team and took the offer.

At 48, he will be the oldest driver in the field when NASCAR resumes its season.
