Matt Kenseth led the halfway point of the Food City 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway after opting for track position with a two-tire pit stop under yellow at Lap 236.

Denny Hamlin has led 117 laps today, but sat second behind Kenseth with Jimmie Johnson, Kasey Kahne (60 laps led) and Greg Biffle rounding out the Top 5 at Lap 250.

Kenseth is looking to follow up his first victory with Joe Gibbs Racing last week at Las Vegas with his third career triumph at “The World’s Fastest Half-Mile.”
