Kenseth wrecks late in the Daytona 500
Daytona Beach, FL (Sports Network) - Matt Kenseth was added to a list of former Daytona 500 champions who have been involved in an accident in Sunday's race at Daytona International Speedway.
Kenseth, the 2009 race winner, got tapped from behind by his Roush Fenway Racing teammate Greg Biffle and then slammed hard into the frontstretch wall on lap 135. Kenseth climbed out of his car uninjured.
"It wasn't [Biffle's] fault at all; it's my fault for using bad judgement," Kenseth said.
Twelve laps later, Biffle was caught up in a wreck with Juan Pablo Montoya.
Hendrick Motorsports drivers and former Daytona 500 winners Jeff Gordon and Jimmie Johnson were among 14 drivers involved in a major wreck on lap 29. Two- time race winner Michael Waltrip was also caught up in the melee.
An accident involving Travis Kvapil forced the 12th caution, which set a record for most cautions in the Daytona 500. Kvapil had been involved in two other incidents earlier in the race.
