Kenseth Reigns Again
Daytona Beach, FL (Sports Network) - Matt Kenseth overcame overheating issues and then avoided two big crashes on the tri-oval before holding off Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Greg Biffle in a green-white-checkered finish to win Monday night's Daytona 500, a race delayed 30 hours due to rain and another two hours following an explosive crash on the track late in the race at Daytona International Speedway.

With 40 laps remaining, Juan Pablo Montoya's car slammed into a jet drying vehicle while the race was under caution. Montoya was traveling at a high rate of speed on the backstretch while rejoining the field, but Montoya lost control and slid into the back of the jet dryer located in turn three. The vehicle, which had jet fuel on board, burst into flames.

"Something fell in the rear of the car, and the car just spun into the jet dryer," Montoya said. "I felt a vibration and came in. [The team] looked at everything, and everything was ok, and I still told them 'I think there is something broke,' and I was coming back into the pits, and the car just spun by itself."  continue>>
