Matt Kenseth says he feels terrible about the wreck that left Kevin Harvick last among the eight drivers still eligible in NASCAR's Chase for the Sprint Cup championship.

Kenseth said Friday that he would be just as frustrated as Harvick, who seemed to promise retaliation. Harvick said after last week's race at Martinsville that Kenseth won't win the championship, adding "If we don't, he won't."

Kenseth says he isn't worried about that possibility since that is nothing he can control. Kenseth is fourth in the standings heading into Sunday's race at Texas.

After speaking with reporters, Kenseth was seen in the garage with Harvick. It was the first time they had spoken since Martinsville.

Harvick walked into his hauler after practice without stopping to answer questions.
