Ross Kenseth (born May 25, 1993) is an American professional stock car racing driver. Son of 2003 NASCAR Winston Cup Series champion Matt Kenseth, he currently competes part-time in the ARCA Midwest Tour, CRA Super Series and ARCA Racing Series.
Born in Appleton, Wisconsin, Kenseth is a student at Clemson University.
Kenseth raced primarily in his native Wisconsin and elsewhere in the Midwest early in his career. He began by racing for one season in a legends car before moved up into late models at Columbus 151 Speedway as a 14-year-old. He won the 2009 Big 8 Late Model Series championship by leading the entire final race at LaCrosse Fairgrounds Speedway's Oktoberfest 48 race.
The series tours Wisconsin and northern Illinois. It was his fifth race win that season and seventh overall in the series.
In 2012, Kenseth won the Winchester 400 at Winchester Speedway and the All American 400 at Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway.
Before the start of the 2013 racing season, Kyle Busch offered Kenseth a ride in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series for that year, but no deal was reached. Kenseth made his debut in the ARCA Racing Series in August 2013, driving at Madison International Speedway in a car owned by Ken Schrader. Kenseth won the pole for the event, and finished sixth in the race.
Former NASCAR drivers, such as Benny Parsons, Kyle Petty (who won the 1979 Daytona ARCA 200; first race he ever competed in), Ken Schrader and others, have competed in and advanced through the ARCA series on the way to successful NASCAR careers. ARCA has been used throughout its history as a stepping stone for hopeful NASCAR drivers.
Kenseth competed in the CRA Super Series in 2014, driving for Boyne Machine Racng; he took the year off from his studies at Clemson and moved to Michigan to be closer to the team. In September Kenseth announced that he would make his superspeedway debut in the ARCA season finale at Kansas Speedway in October.
HMS Boyne was a Hawthorn Leslie type River-class destroyer ordered by the Royal Navy under the 1903 – 1904 Naval Estimates. Named after the River Boyne in Ireland, the site of a British military victory in 1689, she was the fifth ship to carry this name since it was introduced in 1692 for a two deck ship-of-the-line.
