ANIMATED: Matt Kenseth's Car Springs A Leak At Daytona 500

Matt Kenseth is currently in 32nd place at the 2012 Daytona 500, but his car sprung a leak while taking a pit stop. The new water stream relief valve was on full display, as Kenseth's car shot up like a whale's blow hole as the race hit the 75 lap mark. Kenseth has struggled so far as we move towards the midway point of the first ever Monday night NASCAR race. Daytona fans are just happy to see some racing, however, after nearly two full days of inclement weather. There have been four cautions so far, but Kenseth has avoided the big wreck thus far.
