Matt Kenseth says he’s not replacing Danica Patrick at SHR

Strike Matt Kenseth off the list of drivers to replace Danica Patrick at Stewart-Haas Racing.

That’s the word from Bob Pockrass at ESPN, who says in a Tweet:

Kenseth himself is looking for a ride after Joe Gibbs Racing didn’t pick up his contract for next year.

Patrick announced on Tuesday, via Facebook, that she wouldn’t return to SHR next season — not a surprise since she didn’t have a sponsor for 2018. Speculation has run rampant that Aric Almirola would end up in the No. 10, now that his main sponsor, Smithfield Foods, moved its sponsorship from Richard Petty Motorsports to SHR.
