    Matt Kenseth (2016 NASCAR)

NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Matt Kenseth has relisted his home in Mooresville, NC -- with a price drop to boot. The 7,613-square-foot home was listed briefly in 2014 for $2.8 million before disappearing from the market. The home is back up for sale at a slightly more affordable $2.6 million.

The two-time Daytona 500 winner has hit a few skids lately. Kenseth was suspended for two races after intentionally wrecking with Joey Logano in 2015. The suspensions led to two appeals and potential changes in NASCAR policies. Earlier this year, a multicar crash put him in his backup car at the rear of the field for the Daytona 500.

But we're betting the NASCAR veteran will lap the real estate track without a problem. The five-bedroom home -- described as "Old World style" in the listing -- has plenty to offer, including a Louis VIII -- inspired master suite (complete with chandeliers in the bedroom and bathroom).

The kitchen continues the Old World theme with a massive granite island and professional-grade appliances. The formal dining room is definitely formal with an ornate ceiling and another big chandelier.

Of course, since this is North Carolina, the home also has impressive water views to help you relax after a multicar pileup.
