Kenseth Wins Bizarre 2012 Daytona 500 [Video]
Congratulations to Matt Kenseth on his second Daytona 500 Championship, and what has to be one of the most bizarre races in recent history. Asphalt problems earlier in the week, rain delays… Juan Pablo Montoya crashing into a track jet-dryer truck.
It happened on the back stretch as track dryer trucks were out getting the track ready, to go back racing. Montoya was coming up the back stretch to catch the field when something in his car broke and sent him uncontrollably into the jet-dryer causing a huge fire, that threatened to damage the track.
Kenseth ended the night by holding off Dale Jr. for the victory, followed by Greg Biffle in third, and that’s the order they’re in to start their chase for the 2012 Sprint Cup.
