Matt Kenseth's Wife Injured During Practice for Charity Race

CONCORD, N.C. (AP) -- Matt Kenseth says he was "over 90 percent
sure" his wife was injured when she crashed while practicing for a
charity race at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Katie Kenseth broke her shoulder blade when she wrecked the
Bandolero car she was driving Monday night. The 2003 NASCAR
champion was at the track coaching his wife and sprinted down pit
road to help her after the accident.

He says he knew from the impact it was a bad wreck, and had a
"sick feeling" in his gut it was going to be very bad. Kenseth says it was apparent when he got to the car that her arm was injured.

Katie Kenseth was one of 14 wives and girlfriends scheduled to
drive in "Better Half Dash" charity race before the Oct. 15 Sprint Cup Series race at Charlotte.
