Kenseth signs extension; McMurray a lame duck?

According to a team press release, Roush Fenway Racing has signed Matt Kenseth to a multi-year extension. Kenseth was set to become a free agent after the 2009 season along with Jamie McMurray.

With Carl Edwards and Greg Biffle also signing multi-year extensions during the 2008 season, it would appear McMurray is the odd man out when Roush Fenway must get down to the four-car limit after the 2009 season.

Why not David Ragan? Well, with UPS signing on, it's believed they're looking for a little stability so they can build a long-term program with their driver. While it's unknown if Ragan is signed beyond 2009, unless he takes a big step backward from his much improved 2008 performance, it's doubtful UPS would be agreeable to a driver change.
