Daytona 500 Champions Walk of Fame adds Matt Kenseth today

Matt Kenseth’s signature, right footprint and hand prints will now have their place in the history of Daytona International Speedway.

During the upcoming Coke Zero 400 Weekend Powered By Coca-Cola, Kenseth on Friday, July 3 at 11:30 a.m. will participate in a question and answer session with the race fans inside Daytona 500 Experience motorsports attraction and then proceed outside where he will have his 3x3 cement block with his signature, hand prints and right foot print placed into the Daytona 500 Champion’s Walk of Fame.

Kenseth, the winner of the 51st running of the Daytona 500 earlier this year, put his right foot, autograph and handprints into the cement during his Champion’s Breakfast car induction ceremonies.

Winning drivers of the Daytona 500 since 1996, the first year of operation for Daytona 500 Experience, have their hands, right foot and signature immortalized in cement in the Daytona 500 Champion’s Walk of Fame.

Daytona 500 champions Jimmie Johnson, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Jeff Gordon, Dale Jarrett, Ward Burton, Michael Waltrip, Kevin Harvick and Ryan Newman all have had the honor of placing their hands, right foot and signature in the famous wet cement. There is a special plaque in the Daytona 500 Champion’s Walk of Fame honoring the late Dale Earnhardt and his 1998 Daytona 500 victory.
