Matt Kenseth’s house sold for $2,075,000

Matt Kenseth spent the previous 20 years as a Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series driver. He spent his weekend’s traveling the country.

In the early-middle part of the week, Kenseth had a permanent residence on Lake Norman in North Carolina. The location is better known as ‘NASCAR lake’ near Mooresville, NC is home to most of the NASCAR field.

A few weeks ago, Matt Kenseth announced his plans to step away from NASCAR racing at the end of the 2017 season. He’s now a retired NASCAR driver. Just before his announcement, Matt Kenseth’s home finally sold.

Months later it dropped to $2.4 million. Finally, in August the price was set at $2.2 million. It was dropped one final time and sold for $2,075,000.

Over the course of the listing, the home was slightly renovated. In 2014, the home was placed on the market featuring an Old-World theme. In the most recent sale, the interior theme was far more contemporary.

Matt Kenseth ran his 650th race at Homestead-Miami Speedway in late November. That race will likely be his last. Kenseth collected 39 wins throughout his 20 year career.

Matt Kenseth now has a 1 race losing streak. He created with the win in his second to last race of his career. However, he may not be gone forever. He never called it a retirement, instead, he simply called it stepping away.
