Daytona 500 winner Matt Kenseth is counting on his win in the biggest race of the season to propel him to even better things this 2012 Sprint Cup Series campaign.

Kenseth told SIRIUS/XM NASCAR Radio's "The Morning Drive" program he's also hoping for better things this time around after winning "The Great American Race" when he followed that with another win the next week in Fontana, only to miss the Chase.

Kenseth is on a whirlwind media blitz this week that will see him fly to New York, Dallas (where he'll take part in a ceremony at tonight's Dallas Mavericks game) and then Los Angeles before finally settling in Phoenix, where the Cup Series competes this weekend.
