Daytona 500 Shortened by Rain

Filed under: NASCAR — Tags: — blasterhappy @ 7:56 am

Another Daytona 500 is history.  The 51st running of the Great American Race was shortened by rain when NASCAR determined the track was lost after heavy rain moved in from the west.  The race was called with only 48 laps left with Matt Kenseth in the lead with Kevin Harvick, the 2007 Daytona Champ in second.

Kevin Harvick said “If the race is called for rain and Matt wins that would be ok with me because Matt pushed me to the win in 2007.”

Matt Kenseth’s win at Daytona is Roush/Fenway’s first ever Daytona 500 win.

Congrats to Matt Kenseth and the Roush/Fenway organization on the first Daytona 500 win.
