I'm never pleased when a race is shortened, especially a race of this magnitude. But what I think what makes this rain shortened race different than most others I've witnessed is that the didn't really come as a surprise to anybody.
Everybody was racing as if it was the last lap of the race because they knew the skies could up any minute -- except Jeff Gordon and Mark Martin who inexplicably pitted late in the race. I still question that call.
I think Kenseth was a fair winner. He started 39th, but he marched to the front and stayed there once he got up there. Certainly he was helped by the wrecks that sabotaged the efforts of Kyle Busch, Denny Hamlin, Carl Edwards and Jamie McMurray, but he did have a good car. Maybe not a great car, but a good car. You never know, he may have had something for any of those four if he ended up having to race them.
Of course the big story is the wreck caused by Dale Earnhardt Jr., but I'll withhold comment until Tuesday's Feud of the Week. Bet you can't wait.
Good night from Daytona.
