Roush Fenway Racing’s two-time Daytona 500 Champion, Matt Kenseth, is set to return to the site of his historic win this week for a rescheduled fan event celebrating the team’s victory. The win in the 54th “Great American Race” also earned a milestone victory for Roush Fenway Racing as the organization earned its 300th NASCAR win in the process.
Originally scheduled as the
Champion’s Breakfast for the morning of February 27, 2012, the event had to be
rescheduled after rain showers forced the DAYTONA 500 to be run Monday night on
February 28th. The event is open to fans and includes a fan forum
question and answer event with Kenseth, team owner Jack Roush, and crew chief
of the No. 17 Best Buy team, Jimmy Fennig.
Doors open at 10:45 a.m. and
fans will have the opportunity to have their picture taken with the winning No.
17 Best Buy Ford Fusion which is on display at the facility for the next year.
Lunch will also be available for those in attendance, and guests will have the
opportunity to get a tour of Daytona International Speedway.
Tickets for the original
Champion’s Breakfast event for February 27, 2012 will be honored for the
Champion’s Lunch on April 11th. Tickets are also available for $40
by calling 1-800-PITSHOP or online at www.daytonainternationalspeedway.com.
