Matt Kenseth does not exactly look like someone who is running away with the NASCAR Winston Cup championship. He has won one race this season, and that victory came five months ago. He led just 10 laps of the Brickyard 400 on Sunday and finished second to Kevin Harvick, who had a much faster car. But speed does not matter in a championship chase as much as swerving around trouble. Kenseth is doing that.
