2012 Daytona 500: Matt Kenseth Wins Second Duel Race, Will Start Daytona 500 In Second Row

There were two races yesterday to Daytona to help determine the field and Matt Kenseth won the second race, securing a spot in the second row for the running of the Daytona 500 this Sunday. Kenseth discussed the move that won him the race, via Michael Vega of the Boston Globe.

"We just had a big run there,'' Kenseth said. "Jimmie Johnson gave me a huge push there and that really worked nice for me the whole race there. Without that push it would have never gotten done. Greg lost his drafting partner and we were able to separate him and [Regan Smith] and we had such a huge run that Greg was kind of a sitting duck.''

Kenseth joins Tony Stewart as qualifying race winners who will start on the second row of the race this Sunday.
