NASCAR: Matt Kenseth Finishes Boston Marathon In Just Over 3 Hours

NASCAR driver Matt Kenseth finished his first Boston Marathon Monday in an impressive 3:01:40, which is quite impressive.

The 50-year-old former driver Kenseth finished 3,558th overall and was an impressive 141st in his age division. His clocking was also several minutes faster than former NASCAR competitor Jimmie Johnson, who ran the 2019 event in 3 hours, 9 minutes and 7 seconds.

He spoke to WBZ-TV’s Steve Burton after the race.

Kenseth said he had run the Chicago Marathon last October. He finished in 3:09:08, saying that hot, humid conditions made the running more difficult. Monday, Kenseth was treated to sunny and cool weather for the 26.2-mile distance.

“I love this area. I love coming up to Boston,” Kenseth told WBZ. “I always loved racing up in New Hampshire. It’s a great place, so the atmosphere was second to none. It was one of the better experiences in my life — obviously, sporting experience for all the races and everything. This was really cool —  the crowd, enthusiasm and just a huge event. Fun to be part of it.”
