Matt Kenseth Bio

Matt Kenseth PhotoMatt Kenseth's 2012 season began with a blast as he won his second Daytona 500. The race, delayed by rain and an assortment of crashes, finally ended in the wee hours of the morning on February 28th.

The rest of the season was far less disappointing as he finished 4th in the overall point standings with 3 wins, 3 poles, 12 top fives and 20 top ten finishes.
