Matt Kenseth Finally Wins Wet, Fiery Daytona 500
What a crazy race. First, the first rain delay in the history of the Daytona 500. Then, an improbable fiery delay. The drivers waited and waited, and we finally have a winner!
Matt Kenseth has won his second Daytona 500, holding off Dale Earnhardt Jr. to end one of the more bizarre races in NASCAR history.
Kenseth had Roush Fenway Racing teammate Greg Biffle lined up behind him on the final restart, and Biffle played the role of dutiful teammate for the two laps of overtime. Earnhardt pulled out behind Biffle as they closed in on the finish line but couldn’t catch Kenseth.
