After capturing the checkered flag in a chaotic Talladega finish Sunday, NASCAR Championship contender Matt Kenseth continued his winning ways in a visit to ESPN.

During a media appearance on ESPN’s Sportsnation, Sunday’s Good Sam Roadside Assistance 500 at Talladega winner took to the show’s mini course to race the hosts on motor scooter coolers. Monday’s race featured Kenseth going head to head with host Charissa Thompson.

Thompson and Kenseth’s race featured Kenseth driving his scooter with Sportsnation’s other host, Colin Cowherd, on an attached cooler. Dale Jarrett was present to start the one lap race. The race at the Sportsnation Speedway even featured a Tim Tebow cut out where the racers had to make a turn.

As the 2012 season is reaching the final six races, Kenseth is one of the twelve NASCAR Sprint Cup championship contenders. Kenseth currently sits in 12th place and is the last of the chasers in the points standings.

The win at Talladega Superspeedway provided Kenseth his second plate track win of the season. It also provides another positive note for Roush Fenway Racing and Kenseth, as both parties will part ways at the season’s end.

Sunday’s victory at Talladega also proves that Kenseth wants to end his time with Roush Fenway on positive terms and with as many wins as he can. Roush Fenway has been the only team Kenseth has been a part of for most of his NASCAR career. As the two-time Daytona 500 winner sets to end one chapter of his NASCAR career with his current team, Sunday’s win was one of the ways to close it off with.
