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.

    •     Now don't take this the wrong way, but....are you two nuts? Now, if the kid didn't have those injury issues, maybe I can get on board. But man, those petite WRs with injury issues in college? Those guys scare the living poo outta me.   Now get me a Ross clone and I'm on board. Someone for the slot that could actually, you know, scare a Defense. Now that would tickle my giddy like nobodies bidness.
    • IMO, it is obvious, to me anyhow, that the kid has matured. He has taken heat for standing up for what he believes, and has done it the right way. No snarky comments to the press. Keeping his head down, and working toward a goal. He has brought to light injustices not only in our country, but in others as well. His foundation just contributed over a million and a half dollars to the Simolian relief effort.   All that is admirable to be sure. And he can play football as well, or better, than enough QBs to earn himself a shot at a job.   It is not the football side of his life that is keeping him off teams. Almost every team hates distractions. It is just how it is. And Kaep is a walking distraction at this point in time.   I would like to add that another thought could be that at this point in FA, no one is being signed. OK, maybe a better way to put that is, FA spending has slowed considerably.   If teams head to Training Camp and he is still unemployed. Then I may start believing in conspiracies.
    • lol lol lol fahey watched every snap of every game and graded the quarterbacks as he saw it. kaepernick is a fine game manager who was let down repeatedly by perhaps the shittiest set of skill position players in the league and oh yeah he can run like the wind. you've got to be pretty stupid to think this is anything but a quarterback starved league blackballing a serviceable quarterback all because he had the audamndacity to protest racism in america and tbh i've not seen one post itt that would cause me to even begin to question that.
