Kenseth 'Rains' Supreme Over Daytona

Matt Kenseth leads one lap on a big push from Kevin Harvick to take the 43 car field to the red flag, which would eventually turn into a checkered flag when NASCAR determined that the race could not be re-started due to the rain.

Congratulations to Kenseth and his Roush-Fenway team - proving that you only need to lead one lap to win a race.

Kenseth wasn't exactly my pick to win the race on Sunday, I was kind of figuring that his Roush-Fenway teammate Greg Biffle would win - he evntually finished 20th.

In fact, I thought maybe Dale Jr might be able to pull off a win as we all know he is pretty good on restrictor plate tracks, but he instead pulled off the most talked about move of the day - his right turn in Brian Vickers.

I don't honestly know if it was deliberate or not, I mean didn't Jr wreck his teammate Michael Waltrip when he slid in front of Jr a few years ago?  And you must remember what happened to his father back in 2001, I certainly think he hasn't forgot about it, and I don't think he would deliberatly put anyone else in that kind of position do you?

With that being said, I think maybe Jr might need to get his eyes checked.  He had poblems getting into his pitbox all week and then he 'misjudges' his re-entry onto the track and takes out Vickers and several other front runners including Kyle Busch.

Speaking of Busch I think he handled himseelf quite well in his interview, don't you?  I wonder what he would of said if it was anyone else but Jr - say Tony Stewart perhaps?

So what's your take on the 500?
