NASCAR Results: Matt Kenseth Wins Samsung Mobile 500 At Texas Motor Speedway

Matt Kenseth is back on top. For this week, at least.

Kenseth took home the checkered flag in the NASCAR Samsung Mobile 500 at Texas Motor Speedway on Saturday night, picking up the victory. Kenseth appeared to have both the best car and strategy on Saturday night. Kurt Busch was forced to pit late in the race, making it a near certainty that Kenseth would win. 

The top five was rounded out by Clint Bowyer, Carl Edwards, Greg Biffle and Paul Manard. Edwards, of course, won the Nationwide series race on Friday, so it was quite the successful weekend for Edwards, who undoubtedly has fallen in love with the track and lights at Texas Motor Speedway.
