Matt Kenseth - Priceless

Matt Kenseth holds off Dale Earnhardt Jr.
to win a wild Daytona 500

Matt Kenseth, who won back in 2009, claimed his second Daytona 500 victory thanks to a push from teammate Greg Biffle. It was Biffle who blocked a hard-charging Dale Earnhardt Jr., who tried to make a desperation pass at the end but came up short, finishing second, extending his winless streak to 130 races.

“The Roush cars are just really strong, they showed that all week,” Earnhardt said. “I’m happy for Matt. He’s going to need that for his college fund. They’re in good shape now.
