CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Joe Gibbs Racing plans to announce next Tuesday that Matt Kenseth will be its newest driver beginning in 2013, ESPN.com has learned.
The 2003 Sprint Cup champion will take over the No. 20 team driven by Joey Logano with Home Depot as his primary sponsor, sources said.
JGR president J.D. Gibbs said on Saturday at Bristol Motor Speedway he still held out hope of re-signing Logano and adding a fourth team if sponsorship can be found. Logano is not expected to be a part of Tuesday's press conference.
Logano also is a candidate for the No. 22 Cup team at Penske Racing. He recently said he was not interested in a part-time Cup ride and full-time Nationwide Series ride that was one of his options at JGR.
"He was OK with that until another opportunity came up," Gibbs said of Logano.
More fuel to the fire now that Kenseth will in Tony's old ride?
