Matt Kenseth came into Texas riding a 76-race losing streak prior to Saturday's Samsung Mobile 500 Sprint Cup Series race at Texas Motor Speedway, but you wouldn't know it judging by the dominating performance he put on on his way to victory lane.

"I haven't had something like this for a long, long time," Kenseth said in victory lane. "It has been a long time."

Kenseth jumped out front early after starting in the fourth spot and led a total of 169 laps of the 334-lap race.

"Hopefully, we can carry this momentum back to victory lane a couple of times," Kenseth said.

The Roush Fenway Racing organization, overall, dominated the race as a team. Three of the organization's four entries started the race in the top-four, with David Ragan starting on the pole, Carl Edwards joining him on the front row and Kenseth starting fourth. The lone non-RFR driver to start in the top-four was Clint Bowyer, who also ended up as the only non-Roush Fenway driver in the top-four at the end of the race.

Bowyer finished second to Kenseth. Edwards overcame a queasy stomach to finish third and another Roush Fenway driver, Greg Biffle, was fourth.

"It was a good night, a really good weekend," Bowyer said.

Paul Menard rounded out the top-five.

Saturday's race at Texas produced only five cautions. Long green-flag runs resulted in varying pit strategies and fuel gambles late in the race. The biggest fuel gamble of the night was taken by Tony Stewart, and it was a gamble that ended up not paying off.

Stewart pitted during the last caution of the race that came out on lap 215, while most of the field opted to stay out since it hadn't been long since most of them had pitted.

When the rest of the field cycled through green flag stops with about 85 laps to go, Stewart was among the drivers who opted to stay out, hoping for a caution. Kurt Busch also stayed out. The caution they were counting on never came.

After losing a lot of time on the race track to cars on fresher tires, Busch finally came down pit road. Stewart, on the other hand, stayed out until 58 laps to go, planning to make it the rest of the way while everyone else made an additional stop.

Stewart sped down pit road and was assessed a pass-through penalty. As a result of the penalty, when the rest of the field began the final green-flag cycle of stops, Kenseth and Bowyer were able to pit and come back out ahead of Stewart.

After the completed cycle of stops, Kenseth, Bowyer and Stewart ran first, second and third most of the rest of the way so spaced out that the race looked like it would be smooth sailing for them the rest of the way. Kenseth had an eight-second lead on Bowyer, and Bowyer was seven seconds ahead of Stewart in the final laps.

While Kenseth and Bowyer held their positions the rest of the way, Stewart ran out of gas on the final lap and was relegated to a 12th-place finish, the final lead lap spot
