(AP) Matt Kenseth has made his move to Joe Gibbs Racing official, more than two months after he told Roush Fenway Racing he was leaving.


Kenseth won his second Daytona 500 this season and is one of the top contenders for this year's Sprint Cup championship. But he decided in June that his 13th Cup season with Jack Roush would be his last.


He was unable to explain his reasoning in full or reveal where he was headed until Tuesday's announcement.


Kenseth will drive the No. 20 Toyota at JGR and replace Joey Logano. JGR had hoped to keep Logano, but AJ Allmendinger's failed drug test opened a seat at Penske Racing that Logano has pursued.


Kenseth has 22 career victories and won the 2003 championship driving for Roush
