Matt Kenseth won last night’s Daytona 500 putting an end to a somewhat crazy weekend. Kenseth won the rain and fire delayed race, beating Dale Earnhardt, Jr. for his second Daytona 500 win.

According to ESPN, the crazy weekend continued through this morning as many drivers had to stay in Daytona yet another night as fog closed the airport in North Carolina. Rain delayed the race for the first time in its 54 year history until last night. Then a freak accident occurred during the race when Juan Pablo Montoya was driving alone under a caution and hit a safety truck causing an explosion. Workers scrambled to clean the track in order to finish the race by using Tide to clean the jet fuel that leaked on the track from the safety truck.

In the end, after the two hour delay and going on early Tuesday morning, Matt Kenseth and teammate Greg Biffle took the lead positions on the restart with 40 laps to go. From there it was clear that the Rousch Ford’s were faster then the others on the track.
