Roush Fenway Racing announced  that Ricky Stenhouse Jr will move from the Nationwide Series to the Sprint Cup Series full time in 2013 while Matt Kenseth will part ways with the team at season’s end.
Jack Roush said in a press release:
Ricky Stenhouse Jr. has more than proved his abilities on the race track. We feel that he is not only a key piece of our team’s future, but a key piece of the future of the sport. Roush Fenway is an organization with a wonderful past and present, as well as an extremely promising future, and I can’t think of a better candidate than Ricky to usher in the next era of success for the team.
Of course, I’d like to thank Matt Kenseth for his many years of loyal service. Matt has been an integral part of this organization for well over a decade, and we are extremely appreciative of his accomplishments and contributions to the team, and will always consider him a part of the Roush Fenway family.
There has been no word on where Kenseth will end up by ESPN speculated  that Kenseth could be headed to Joe Gibbs Racing, which could elect not to re-sign Joey Logano , or could start a fourth team for Kenseth, or he could be headed to Penske Racing, which is switching from Dodge to Ford  in 2013.
