NASCAR kicks back in Kentucky this weekend with the Quaker State 400 at Kentucky Speedway, where a team owner will be back behind the wheel and Clint Bowyer is throwing a party. But come this race next year, Matt Kenseth will be with a different team.

FOX News Radio’s Marghiee “Trackside” Teshineh has this weekend’s NASCAR preview:

When it comes to driving at Kentucky Speedway, Ryan Newman is a fan.

(Newman) “It’s got a lot of character because it’s pretty bumpy, and I enjoy it.”

For Denny Hamlin, it’s a mixed review.

(Hamlin) “You know, it’s a fun track, but it’s also a very hard track to pass on.”

And for Carl Edwards, he loves Kentucky because…

(Edwards) “My first win in NASCAR was there in the Truck Series. ┬áIt’s huge for me to be able to go back there and to have the opportunity to run in the Cup Series and get a win there.”

After 14 years together, Matt Kenseth is parting ways with Rousch-Fenway Racing at the end of the season.  Replacing him at Rousch: Nationwide driver Ricky Stenhouse, Jr.

Owner Michael Waltrip gets behind the wheel of his own #55 Toyota at Kentucky, making his second start of the season.

And Clint Bowyer celebrated the opening of the Bowyer Community Building in his hometown of Emporia, Kansas with a concert featuring his friend, country star Blake Shelton.
