Shocking Moment During Daytona 500

February 28, 2012 by staff 

Shocking Moment During Daytona 500, Appropriately, in the end the car was spewing water, a little geyser emitting from the vehicle’s overflow valve. Because there’s something about a battle with the elements that brings out the best in Matt Kenseth at the Daytona 500.

Just as he did three years ago, the Roush Fenway driver claimed NASCAR’s biggest race on a day when the weather — among other things — was as staunch an opponent as anything he would face on the track at Daytona International Speedway. The first Daytona 500 to ever be pushed back a day because of rain turned into the first Daytona 500 to ever start under the lights, which turned into a six-hour marathon that featured everything from big crashes to a car colliding with a jet dryer.

But in the end it was NASCAR’s Mr. Steady, the unflustered Midwesterner, who overcame it all and streaked ahead of the field in a green-white-checkered finish. With some help from teammate Greg Biffle — who willingly or not served in the role of blocker, and kept an onrushing Dale Earnhardt Jr. at bay — Kenseth backed up his victory in Thursday’s second 150-mile qualifying event to win a long, eventful Daytona 500 that was supposed to begin Sunday afternoon and didn’t end until the early hours of Tuesday morning.
