CAMBRIDGE, Wis. (AP)

The mother of NASCAR driver Matt Kenseth has died.

An obituary from a Cambridge, Wis., funeral home and Kenseth's fan website say Nicola ''Nicki'' Sue Kenseth battled Alzheimer's disease and died Tuesday at age 63 at Oak Park Place in Cottage Grove.

Matt Kenseth grew up in Cambridge and won the Daytona 500 in 2009.

A funeral service is scheduled Friday at Willerup Methodist Church in Cambridge.

She is survived by her husband, Roy, her children, Kelley and Matt, and five grandchildren.

Back in early 2000 I designed and sold die-cast collectible race cars. We carried the Team Calibre line that Jack Roush owned. Matt's Parents ran his fan club. So on a whim one day, I decided to call them. As luck would have it, they had been looking for a dealer of Team Calibre cars. This started a 2 year long friendship between Roy and Nicki. Whenever, TC came out with a Kenseth car, they could count on a call from me to see how many they needed. They were always great to chat with.

My prayers go out to the entire Kenseth family.
